For your information, Freebsd version 9.0 is out of support and does not 
support the current hardware computer manufactures are using. The 
sysinstall tool has been replaced with the bsdinstall tool. The current 
supported version is 11.2. You really have to get a more current version 
of freebsd to play with.

The English version of the handbook can be found here
