(3) My way:
I first install a minimal distribution of FreeBSD on a new machine, then
do something like
# cd / && gunzip -c /mnt/remote_storage/old_host_root.dmp.gz | restore -ruf -

and you gen mix of new and old system, with all files appearing that are on fresh install but not on old system.

why to make things so complicated while it is so simple.

start livecd then

man bsdlabel
man newfs
man restore

fdisk is unneeded at all if there is only *BSD on disk. and less mess with all these s1/s2/s3/s4 in names
