Good evening all!
I'd like to install FreeBSD on a machine that already runs Windows in a
dual-boot setup. This works find when using UFS for /, /var and /usr.
However, I'd like to install FreeBSD on ZFS. Well, I could live with a
separate / with UFS and the rest being on ZFS.
The BSD installer doesn't offer this functionality and I have never done
this before, so I'd like a guideline to how this is done. The handbook
does state that I could accomplish this via the shell, but does not say
how this is done.
Is there a useful howto out there on how to accomplish the task at hand
or is this generally a bad idea?
Note: The medium I'd like to install FreeBSD on is an SSD.
