Hi,

You can use ZFS for the root filesystem, but you cannot boot from it yet.
Guides for how to set up ZFS and what's supported can be found here:
http://wiki.freebsd.org/ZFS

Sysinstall doesn't support ZFS yet, so you'll have to do some tricks after
install to get ZFS up and running. Remember, the support is experimental. But
I definately recommend to give it a try
