install to start the
* For some reason, anaconda has decided to stop setting the root

set it manually ASAP after booting into the installed system.
* Plenty of functionality still missing, such as web caching and IPv6.
* ejabberd needs some [[Ejabberd_Configuration|configuration] before
starting, which is currently difficult.

* The installer stops when to be installed disk has a FreeBSD slice/
