I initially installed PCBSD 9.0 on my system the day it was released. But I'm a huge GNOME fan & don't like KDE that much. Also, I was thinking of giving FreeBSD a try. So, I downloaded the FreeBSD 9.0 DVD (amd64) from the net & burned it on the drive. I have allocated the 97 GB of my second HDD to PCBSD which made partitions automatically. I chose ZFS filesystem to see what was the fuss all about. Now, when I tried to install FreeBSD on those partitions, it refused. I had to re-initialize the slice.
