Hi,

the below was resolved by rebooting the server. After a reboot the device
file /dev/da0s1g has been created, however this doesnt seem completely
normal as sysinstall obviously expected to see the new device file
immediately. Perhaps there is a prob with my system or is there just a
problem with the expectations of sysinstall?? :S

cheers Andy.
