FreeBSD "Welcome to the home page of the finstall project, accepted for Google's Summer of Code 2007. This project aims to create a user-friendly graphical installer for FreeBSD & FreeBSD-derived systems. The project should yield something usable for 7.0-RELEASE, but the intention is to keep it as a "second" installer system during 7.x, alongside sysinstall. In any case, sysinstall will be kept for architectures not supported by finstall (e.g. all except i386 and amd64)." A first version has been released.

That would be very nice. I'm not afraid of the command line, but the more that can be done from the installer to have a fully configured system after reboot the better.

It would also be helpful if it would have options for adding scripts from /usr/local/etc/rc.d to rc.conf as well. Newbies may not know that added apps put scripts there, and they don't have default lines in rc.conf.
