Try doing this in two runs of sysinstall:

    * Create the BIOS partitions without any BSD label
    * Save the partitions and reboot
    * Then create the BSD label and swap

I vaguely remember sysinstall having problems with partitions that were
created in one session, but I haven't used sysinstall in ages now...
