typo:: should be /mnt. The error from the "3D" sysinstall script
"Error mounting /mnt/dev/ad0s2e on /mnt/usr : Invalid argument"
By-hand? no. Entirely by sysinstall. Menu-driven script.

Surprising, the OS does boot. /bin must be there because typing
mount /usr tells me that /usr has a bad superblock.
Maybe I can create the /usr mountpoint. If I reboot from
CD everything is lost. (I didn't check if /stand got'
FWIW, the strange this is: If I create a tiny /usr of,
say, 5GB, vrything is happy. Can I use /stand/sysinstall
from an already-created system to upside partitions?
The real question is: what is causing the original
"Error mounting" error?!
