Yes, that's true. You see this was my second or third attempt to install FreeBSD which having been successful :) has survived up till today and does what I want. I am sure I will do many things in a different way in future than I did last time. For example, I would like to reserve a separate partition for /home and a separate one for mail so that I have as little trouble moving things around as possible. But - hey - I am on this list and learning quite a lot! And thanks for the /usr/tmp symlink tip!
