if i would like to install FreeBSD without sysinstall, what things should 
i do after:

1) dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/ad0 bs=1m count=1 to clean up the disk (or da0 
or else depending what king of disk is used)
2) bsdlabel -w ad0
3) bsdlabel -e ad0 and edit my slices
4) newfs my slices
5) boot0cfg&bsdlabel -B.

CAN be just bsdlabel -B used with FreeBSD-only partitioning?

6) mount destination structure under /mnt & export DESTDIR=/mnt
7) in each distribution directory do ./
8) create /mnt/etc/fstab, edit rc.conf etc.

what else must be done to install system this way?
