Thanks. I followed those steps to get the system installed and the rest
of the steps in Andrey's post.
I had one more issue before I got a full working system. I had to add:
to /boot/loader.conf. Without that line, I got some error telling me to
try 'set vfs.root.mountfrom.options=rw' and it left me at a "mountfrom>"
prompt. But unfortunately, my USB keyboard didn't work at that prompt.
Thus I rebooted from FixIt and added the line above. One more reboot
and voila! ZFS on Root.
Thanks for all the help,
Be a Great Magician!
