#5 was happened due to broken pcbsd2.tar.lzma in my download;
Redownloaded and reinstalled;

6. Start "ports" from menu, after that start konsole - konsole will get 
same icon - bug, I think KDE's, but not sure;
7. Installed PBI while installing system didn't put icons to users 
Desktops - we will live with that ? :)
8. Currently we have no options to make manual partition layout (for 
example, if we have not one HDD and want some specific layout), maybe 
let's think about optional step in installation with console input and 
prompt to configure partitions fully manually?
