At a recent NYC*BUG meeting Isaac Levy <ike at lesmuug.org> suggested I let 
you know about my efforts to make installing FreeBSD root-on-zfs relatively 
painless.  The scripts and writeup can be found at 

I've used this zfsboot script to install onto a single drive and also onto 
a four drive raidz with good results.  And I used the usbinstall script to 
prepare a bootable USB flash disk for running the zfsboot install.

Thanks for making ZFS on FreeBSD a reality.
