I had 64 bit computer with Win XP installed on da4 (SATA 0) I did a fresh
install using the full dvd ofthe newest 64bit  9.0-CURRENT on da6 (SATA 1)
and also installed the boot manager.  Installation completed fine, but on
rebooting I could never get a prompt to choose between Windows & PCBSD.  I
will reinstall again.

Next, I installed 9.0-CURRENT in VirtualBox where the host system was PCBSD
8.2.  Installation went fine and I played around with it for a while.  It
started with Gnome, and I switched to KDE just fine.  I could not get any
guest additions installed.  Later, I shut down the virtual machine normally,
but now Virtual Box says the virtual machine is "not accessible."  Will
explore this issue further.
