    Gary, are you mounting it by hand? I wouldn't expect to see either the
    '/mntg' or the '/mnt' parts.
     

    double check to make sure your /etc/fstab is configured correctly. Make
    sure that the device (/dev/*) and the mount point (*/usr) actually exist
    before the filesystem gets mounted.

    Can you be more specific? At which prompt? I create the
    ad0s2 slice below the NTFS slice, then procede to the next
    menu to the Disklabel editor. There I create reasonable
    partitions for /, SWAP, /tmp, /var, /home, and /usr.

    /usr is ballpark 130GB. After I select "All" from the
    menu below, and from the last sysinstall selection,
    install/newfs/<<etc>>, the script errors. So...(???)

    ^^^^
    typo:: should be /mnt. The error from the "3D" sysinstall script
    was:

    "Error mounting /mnt/dev/ad0s2e on /mnt/usr : Invalid argument"

    By-hand? no. Entirely by sysinstall. Menu-driven script.

    Surprising, the OS does boot. /bin must be there because typing
    mount /usr tells me that /usr has a bad superblock.

    Maybe I can create the /usr mountpoint. If I reboot from
    CD everything is lost. (I didn't check if /stand got'
    created.

    FWIW, the strange this is: If I create a tiny /usr of,
    say, 5GB, vrything is happy. Can I use /stand/sysinstall
    from an already-created system to upside partitions?

    The real question is: what is causing the original
    "Error mounting" error?!
