I have also reported a bug in the partitioning but not had any feed back 
whatsoever, it happens on my machine I am dual booting windows xp with 
freebsd 5.4, I am using the GAG boot manager.
The FreeBSD 6.0 Beta 1 partitioning creates a slice at /dev/X and will 
not install when I try commit via cd or ftp, at first I thought the 
/dev/X was a 'new' feature of FreeBSD 6.X+ thats why I tried too commit, 
but obviously got an error.
I have 'deleted' (but not commited anything) the other paritions and it 
will create a normal partition at /dev/ad1s1 , I cannot afford too loose 
the data on the other partitions and dont have enough space on my first 
hard drive too back up almost 200gb.

I have also tried too install Solaris 10 x86 and that would not allow me 
too create a partition

My system is as follows:

AMD Athlon 2000+XP
Jetway V266B motherboard ( )
Western Digital 80GB (IDE Channel 0, XP Pro only on NTFS )
Western Digital 250GB (IDE Channel 1, FreeBSD 5.4, 2xNTFS, 1xFAT32)
768MB 266MHZ DDR
