I will also point out that while there are only one set of instructions for 9.x, the necessary steps changed as the minor revs of 9 went by. The instructions tended to apply to the latest and if you did not have a cache of the older instructions and needed to recover an older release you were in trouble.

Actually, I do have 1 more question. Partway down in the setup, stuff is 
echoed to /tmp/bsdinstall_etc/fstab to setup swap, but nothing about the 
other parts of the FS (ZFS stuff) .... Is that AOK ? TIA & have a good one.
