I successfully installed 1.5 to an external USB disk drive but during

/dev/da0 not /dev/ad0,
but who knows? I recovered the partitions with gpart, but WinXP still
doesn't boot successfully. :-(
If I'm feeling masochistic, I could try the install again, and see if
the bsdinstaller did it.
Please do if you get a chance. If there is a bug in this area of BSD
Installer we really need to fix it.
