Monitoring FreeBSD installations

I decided to re-partition my x86 laptop hard drive today, which required me to re-install FreeBSD (the disk label changed rather drastically). After I hit “commit” to propogate the changes, I hit “control-alt-F2” and was thrown into virtual terminal #2. This virtual terminal contained the output from the package extractions, and I found it a bit more useful that the progress meter that was updating in virtual terminal #1. I digs me some FreeBSD!
