*stab* *stab* 

Freebsd sysinstall doesn't support GPT? Freebsd loader in 7.0 doesn't 
support booting off GPT partition?

How the *(@#(*@(*#&*#$ are you supposed to use disks that are >2TB in 

I know the answer: try to install it as MBR partitioning, hotwire it into 
GPT partitioning scheme, hopefully not breaking MBR-based loader, and 
cross your fingers. 

die freebsd die already.
