Sorry if my post was not clear. The 9.0 cd and dvd have bsdinstall in 
/usr/sbin and /usr/libexec/bsdinstall/. After the install is completed 
the H.D also contains the same directories. /usr/sbin/bsdinstall is a 
script which sets some bsdinstall variables that launch the different 
install functions from /usr/libexec/bsdinstall/. This whole process 
starts with the keymap process as coded in the auto script.

Now what I am looking for is the script that has the bsdinstall welcome 
screen dialog in it. It is displayed before the keymap screen is displayed.
