	That might be.
	I have tried this with:

	1) amd64 beta3 and beta4 using the downloaded DVD images
	2) 7.1/7.2 using the installation CD from the set sold by
FreeBSD Mall.

	I also tried on several sets of hardware: SCSI, IDE, SATA.  The
number of disks and number of slices and partitions per disk had no
	(1) always failed; (2) succeeded.  (Fruitlessly, since the
specification was for a clean install of 8.0 code and I had to wipe
and try (1) again.)
