Very good advice! Sadly, it makes me feel that all my knowledge
is very outdated because sade didn't come into my mind at fist
place. :-)

The use of sysinstall is just a suggestion when you're booting
from a FreeBSD live file system, so you end up in sysinstall
anyway. On a system already running, sade definitely is the
better tool.
