i think it uses kemu, but its really a simple installation process, the whole thing is just a package, contained in the iso image i linked earlier. i will look at it for fun, but - i always prefer normal than simple installation process because it's good to know what actually happened.

If you just want to run other FreeBSD's I whould try jail ( man jail ). It's covered in the handbook too.. and it works PERFECT. i run 14 jails on one machine, no problems. the only (but big) disadventage are lack of IPv6 in jail. hope it will be fixed.
