I have been trying to install FreeBSD to the 2nd partition
of my disk for several weeks now, with no luck.

Here is the backstory.
I have a  500GB disk, partitioned into 5 100GB partitions.
I have PCBSD in the first partition.  I had tried to put
PCBSD in the 2nd partition an save whatever was in the first,
but finally gave up.

Now I would like to install FreeBSD into the 2nd partition
and am having the same problems.  The documentation (the way
I read it) would imply this is possible, but FreeBSD seems
to want to overwrite the PCBSD in the first partition.

So, what am I missing? What do I have to do to get the
new installation in the 2nd partition.
