I already have one test machine running with UFS /boot and HAMMER for /,
/home, /usr and /var (the last three are PFS).  I used Matts rconfig
script to do it.

Just reboot the box with a live CD/DVD and execute his script called (its in /usr/share/examples/rconfig/).  If you have another
disk setup, be sure to modify the script!  The script is only available
on a 2.1 CD, its not present on 2.0 (not sure if it was MFCed for

As a side node: the machine is stable since 13 days and builds packages
all day long :)
