            Not compliant ....
            Dear maintantainer,

            Your FreeBSD boot-rescue system this way is not very compliant to the FreeBSD standard:

            - You dump all the utilities to /usr/bin. This is fairly non-standard on FreeBSD. You usually find tools that is shipped with FreeBSD under /usr/bin and /bin and all extra goes to /usr/local/bin. If you keep this way, the maintenance will be problematic.

            - You should reference which FreeBSD version you use.

            - You can allways use the FreeBSD CD1 for rescue purpose.

            - You there is a live CD FreeBSD project that can ( be used as a live FreeBSD.
