Greetings - (not a draft notice)
First thanks to those who responded to my previous question.
I was attempting to install 8.0 amd64 w/ZFS. I used instructions from the wiki
and when I had trouble, I decided to beat a strategic retreat and just do a

about not being able to find an initial inode.) I figured 'gpart destroy ad0'

Thanks for any assistance...
To everything there is a season,
And a time to every purpose under heaven.
