FreeBSD/i386 ZFS enabled bootstrap loader, Revision 1.1
(root at, Sun Mar 21 04:11:17 UTC 2010)
can't load 'kernel'

Type '?' for a list of commands, 'help' for more detailed help.
OK load zfs
can't find 'zfs'
OK load opensolaris
can't find 'opensolaris'
OK _

I says that it is a ZFS enabled bootstrap loader, but it does not appear
that the root filesystem is loaded.
