FreeBSD 9.0-RELEASE ADM64 bsdinstall bug

Hello :-)

There are bugs during the "stable" release installation on adm64
machine using bsdinstall from dvd1.iso making it impossible to install
the system:
1. bsdinstall starts
2. partitioning goes well
3. packages selection and exctraction goes well
4. error message shows up "Error while extracting base.txz: Can't set
user=0/group=0 for var/emptyCan'r update time for var/empty"

Then bsdinstall asks if I want to restart or exit the installation.

Please add "sysinstall" next to the "shell" and "live cd" selection
dialog at installation startup :-) Replacing sysinstall with
bsdinstall is a linux-style mistake... if you want to create an
alternative, make it an option :-)

Please advise :-)

Best regards,
Tomek Cedro
