it's a customized freesbie. i'm trying to install a freebsd system via this disk, and when i'm trying to write out the labels on ad0s1 in sysinstall (previously i had configured it to installroot=/mnt) it writes the bsdlabel, and after that runfs newfs on ad0s1a and mounts it to / instead of /mnt. from this point, the whole system is messed up, reboot is required.

sysinstall should take into account the installroot option when mounting freshly labelled partitions.
lunch sysinstall, partition and label a disk, specify mount points for the disk, press w to write it out, and there it goes.
