Well, I'm very pleased to report that I now have a successful install
of FreeBSD up and running!  Finally!

Don't know why I didn't think of it sooner, but I decided to try
installing on an external USB drive I have here, and it worked just

Got X configured and running and everything.  I am pleased.  :-)

Thanks to everyone for all the helpful suggestions.  I'm still going to
work on installing on my main drive, of course.  But at least now I can
dump Linux altogether and still have a working FreeBSD.

Goodbye and good riddance, Linux!  :-)
