 The installer currently supports installing the system to any available single disk. It is possible to select which parts (distribution sets) of the system to install, and also to customise the disk partition layout. Sysinst can also use vnode pseudo disks, so can be tested without the need to re-install the host system.  The installer currently supports installing the system to any available single disk.

 The first goal is to allow partitioning disks using the GUID partition table (GPT). The current partitioning code is tight heavily to the BSD disklabel. Fixing it is straight forward, but both methods have to be offered and only some architectures can boot from GPT disks.  The first goal is to allow partitioning disks using the GUID partition table (GPT).

 The second goal is to allow preparing several disks. This part would also be usefull (see "other enhancements" below) as a stand-alone tool. Various disks may be partitioned using different shemes, for example when the boot disk can not use GPT, but secondary (large) disks should use it. This part also is a direct prerequisite for the following one.  The second goal is to allow preparing several disks.
