I do not code in any way.  With that being said, should you be able to 
help please do so with the knowledge that I can not code.  I'm following 
the freebsd handbook when the following occurs.

-- separate fresh 'dangerously dedicated' installs of both 7.0 and 
6.3-RELEASE on the same machine, yield the following:
In multi-user mode make buildworld, buildkernel and installkernel.
Shutdown now
-- fsck -p
/dev/ad4s1a: NO WRITE ACCESS

This happens each and everytime no matter if I install from iso -or- ftp 
(passive). After numerous attempts the only way to get past this is 
'fsck -y'. Could the fbsd handbook section I'm following need updating 
or is there another issue taking place here?
