I found a problem with the network configuration utility:
  - proxy:
     - setting the proxy to "http://sub.domain.com"  removes everything 
but the "http" when closed and re-opened
  - setting a manual IP for an interface
     - the subnet mask ( produce an error that the netmask 
should be between 0..255
  - sometime the /etc/resolve is empty even if the DNS is configured in 
the interface. Closing, reopening and reconfiguring the tool seems to 
work, but the first run didn't.

Other than that, I configured an old computer with 9.1 and ZFS and only 
2GB Ram and I definitely see the difference, a lot faster.
