One last question ... hopefully lol. am I going to run into any issues w/
the default fbsd6 layout?

What I think I failed to previously mention is that this machine started out
with fbsd6.x, was upgraded many times from 6x though 7.1 where it fell into
disuse. With my recent repurpose of this box ... I'm concerned that it might
be a moot point if base won't fit on rot root slice.
