:Does it help if you manually "cd /dev && ./MAKEDEV ad1s2a" before using
:the installer?  From this it looks like it somehow skipped making that
:device node... I thought we caught all these cases, all but maybe not.

    It looks like the installer is testing ad1s2 and assuming that
    ad1s2a exists if ad1s2 does, but in fact this is not necessarily
    the case.  MAKEDEV by default will create ad1s2 but not ad1s2{partition}.
