You're welcome. I'm not on the FreeBSD developer's team so I can't
answer your questions about the FAQ. There is however a wiki at
freebsd.org and I could ofc provide an article there if the developers
find it useful. Sysinstall is simply put just a frontend to the commands
I use in the guide and you could accomplish the exact same install
thorugh it if you change the default options. But I find it much easier
to do this basic install manually instead of navigating through several
pages of menus. :-)
