Thanks for jogging my memory, Ian. I get the same results here. The  
Software and Updates Manager even shows that they are not installed  
even though I told it to during the install.

I also checked on the partitioning and it did not set it up the way I  
told it to using a custom partitioning scheme. Basically I told to to  
split the HD with the first half going to PC-BSD but it ended up using  
the entire drive for PC-BSD. The drive was originally one large PC-BSD  
partition running ZFS. I will try the partitioning again with the next  
alpha and just wipe the whole drive and leave it unformatted. Then I  
will see if it will actually use the partition size I specify.
