This post hasn't appeared on the list after almost 24 hours so I'm
re-posting. Apologies if it appears twice.
It seems that about 50% of the posts I make to the lists (-questions and
-ports) never show up.

Thanks for that Matthew, it confirms that I've made the right decision
to do a completely clean install :-)
Which leads me to ask if there are likely to be any issues with
dual-booting 6.3-STABLE (as of ~1 month ago) and 7.0-RELEASE? I vaguely
recall from way back there being issues with dual-booting multiple
versions of FreeBSD.
Maybe that was when trying to install both in the same slice?
Mine will be installed on separate hard disks. The only thing I could
think may possibly be an issue is the FreeBSD Boot Manager. The current
setup uses the FBSD BM to boot FBSD and Ubuntu on separate disks - it's
the Ubuntu disk that I will be zapping to install 7 - is there anything
to watch out for (apart from the obvious stupidity of selecting the
wrong disk to newfs ;-) )
