My recipe on the last few installs have been the UFSBoot guide, but
instead I put /boot on a USB stick.
After installation I insert a second USB stick and follow the
handbook to configure a gmirror over 2 of them.
I make sure to:
newfs -L usbboot -b 65536 /dev/daXs1a
and use the ufs label in /etc/fstab:
tank / zfs rw 0 0
/dev/ufs/usbboot /bootdir ufs rw 0 0
This works very well so far and I can use 100% of my disk drives for
ZFS without wasting so much as a slice.
I'm not sure if there's any particular gotcha with this in the long
run... the usbs are pretty much read-only until I do another make
Now I've also converted to using ahci.ko after Jeremys tip.
I run releng_8_2 and
on all (4) machines so far.
