The release notes for FreeBSD 7.3 said that it could boot to zfs. I did

I wiped the disk and tried again to verify I didn't miss a step. Same
I saw a suggestion that zfs.cache needed to be copied. I did that
during the setup, but I tried doing it again from Fixit. Same result.
You don't need this step for 7.3.
The other suggestion I saw was to do section 2 step 7 "again." That
shouldn't be necessary for 7.3, but I tried it anyway. Still seeing
"can't load 'kernel'."
I quoted the wrong sentence - you don't need _this_ step.
Any suggestions for getting FreeBSD 7.3 to boot to ZFS?
Can you try the following at the loader prompt, where you see the
FreeBSD boot options?
load opensolaris # should not be necessary, but just to be safe
