Perhaps someone can chime in with an installer tip - However, given
this is a non standard and sort of 'expert' install, you might review
the 'INSTALL' file under / from the shell and try a manual install -
its actually fairly straightforward - steps being roughly:

  - partition disks
  - install bootloader
  - create & mount filesystems
  - copy over files
  - remove some installer specific files from the copies
  - reboot

disclaimer: some of the disklabel / partitioning stuff is a bit out
of date w/r/t disklabel64 / slice numbers, etc. I keep meaning
to send a patch.. but anyhow.
