@charlie_lab

I definitely prefer the new one (ZFS Madness) and that is what I use on my servers and laptop, mostly because of the ZFS Boot Environments which are now possible on FreeBSD with sysutils/beadm port.

ad0 (generally adX drives) were used in the past if AHCI was not enabled. As AHCI support has been implemented in FreeBSD the drives are ada0 (or adaX generally) to distinguish them from adX drives without AHCI enabled. Probably the best part of AHCI is the NCQ, which can be described here: http://expertester.files.wordpress.c...x-ncq_svg1.png

This HOWTO is on a 'Gentoo level'.

If You want easy fast install, then use bsdinstall:

... or You can use PC-BSD DVD/USB to install PLAIN FreeBSD with their QT graphical installer:

I've installed Free/PC-BSD plenty of times without incident.

ZFS is complex but the installation for it is fairly straight forward, even on FreeBSD and PCBSD distributions, and works well.

I can't see much point in file systems like hammer, zfs or btrfs on a desktop system. Certainly if you're just installing an operating system in order to run one of these file systems and have to ask questions on a forum to do it - you're probably installing that OS for all the wrong reasons.
