To install CURRENT on my hardware (netbook, laptop, ...) I use normally
my own USB stick, created with, boot from it and
do the partitioning with 'bsdinstall', but interrupt this when it goes
to install. Then I mount the new (empty) partition to /mnt and do the
installation with:

# mount /dev/ada0p2 /mnt
# make installworld  DESTDIR=/mnt
# make installkernel DESTDIR=/mnt
# make distrib-dirs  DESTDIR=/mnt
# make distribution  DESTDIR=/mnt

Is this as well possible for ZFS? And how can I use both disks ad0 and
ad1, both with ZFS, but not used as 'mirror'?
