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.

some bios menus have a list of choice boxes
on the left, an explanation of consequences
on the right. If I had time/skills
(hardly likely), chances are I would try to
ascertain if a beta of *that* is an improvement
over the fdisk/bsdlabel parts
of sysinstall (unless this project is better)
