There are still issues with the boot loader.

Probably not...

Sigh. I haven't been
    able to figure out why some machines can't find /boot/loader.  It's got
    to be some sort of disk addressing issue but none of my boxes have this
    behavior so I can't track down exactly what or why.

I have seen it with other *BSD's and other OS' - OS/2 notoriously so. Controller/BIOS or cylinder issue, sometimes just driver sequencing. Often not the same for initial installation as it is later..

Will explore those with Sam offline and get back...
