I've been trying out 9.0-BETA1: it's a lot easier to install than 
previous releases with bsdinstall, but I spotted a few issues:

Typo - "Resovler Configuration".
If I leave the resolver window for a while it gets corrupted with:

Aug 2 10:31:23 dhclient[973]: Bogus domain search list 15: lan, .....

In the documentation installation screen, it should say "At a 
minimum..." - the 'a' is missing. Also, there should perhaps be a 
semi-colon between "English version" and "this is the original".  The 
menu also doesn't appear to do anything once you select "OK".

The shell menu should perhaps have a newline after "making", to avoid 
"configuration" wrapping.
Also, the partitioning screen should maybe have "Continue" instead of 
The known issue with the installation not creating /home is still 
present in BETA1.
