I'm a blind user of BSD, and notice
that in the sysinstall program, the cursor doesn't follow the hilight.
This is bad for us because screen readers track the system cursor,
which is usually on the bottom of the screen. This also increases the risk
of partitioning the wrong disk or making other similar errors.
run sysinstall
change sysinstall so that the cursor is on the same line as the highlighted item.
