It seems that disklabel is the problem spot.
Use 8.0 Partition menu to allocate 2 slices (partitions) 20GB for S1 and rest for S2,
then install 8.0-Beta4 on S1.
W command in slice (Partition) menu succeed with bootloader manager installing option (Choose FreeBSD),
but W command in Label menu had the same error -- Unable to find device node ...
After quite installationm and restart the system, the bootloader is still show old
partitions (S1 DOS, S2/S3 7.2).
Boot 8.0-Beta4 DVD again, and Partition menu shows no partition at all (no slice allocated).
This indicates that disklabel did not correctly write disk partition information on to the dirve.
