FTR, this may in fact work - I haven't tested it, which is why I
described it as being "unsupported".  :)

But if you do try this, start dfuibe_installer like so instead:

	dfuibe_installer -o /cdrom/

The "-o" argument tells it where to get the DragonFly files from.  When
booting off CD, this is normally "/", but in this case, "/" will be the
existing files on the hard drive...

You may also have to adjust your PATH before starting dfuibe_installer
so that it picks up utility programs (like cpdup) from the CD-ROM
instead of the ones on the hard drive.
