Installation Logs for FreeBSD 8.x?

Hi All,

Is it possible to write FreeBSD 8.x installation logs onto a resulting
FreeBSD 8.x host via sysinstall or some scripting method?  I am
interested in output one sees during a normal installation plus any
warning/error conditions.  Ideally, this information will end up on
the installed host in a directory within /var.  sysinstall docs don't
seem to explain any sort of facility to accomplish this.  Perhaps
there is someone out there who has done something similar that might
be able to share their knowledge?

Take care
