Josh, Can you try this again, and look at the log file after it fails?

Check /dev/label/*, did a rootfs0 label get created for your root device?
If not, do you know of any reason a label would dissapear even though
"glabel label rootfs /dev/ad0s1a" returns success?

I think I know where this is coming from, can you try this? Boot in vmware,
and open xterm when you get to the installer. Then run:

/PCBSD/pc-sysinstall/pc-sysinstall detect-nics

What does that return? I'm guessing there is some error in the output
