I'm having problems with sysinstall used from a script.  (Before you
ask, yes I've read the man page and yes I know sysinstall is "greatly
in need of death" but I've not yet found a plausible alternative.  I'm
all ears if you've got one to suggest.)  I'm using a custom built live
CD based on FreeSBIE and the script attached below.  When I invoke
this sysinstall certainly seems busy -- it claims to be unpacking the
distribution set I specified -- but it doesn't actually accomplish
anything.  No boot loader is installed and no changes are made to the
partition table.

I'm sure I've missed something obvious but I haven't been able to work
it out through searching the documentation on http://freebsd.org/, the
archive for this list or Google in general.  What am I doing wrong?
