This part I'm sure of. Yes, I chose the "use the whole disk" setting.
It's a server meant to be continuously accessible, so a multiple boot
choice would be ... weird. ;-)

And it had been too long since I'd last run FreeBSD as a server to be
sure of how I would allocate partitions anyway. (In my experience, the
sizes people tell you are never right *for* *you* and I'm not sure
it's really an advantage to partition up a disk this way, anyway.)

Having gone through the fsck -fy already, I don't think I can recover
/tmp/fsck.txt--I just looked, and I had just enabled /tmp cleanup, so,
no, it isn't still there.
