Hi, I have installed the newest snapshot (20110425). I tried various zfs drive configurations on 2 machines. One amd64 and one x86. Both installs went well except for the 
nvidia driver will not automatically load at boot time. Unfortunately, I get not detailed errors in the log file except for the module not loading. I did read that Kris was working on this now. 
I encountered the same behavior in both machines. In case it helps at all, I found that as long as there is a working x-config, you can manually load the driver at boot 
from the console prompt and everything works as expected after that. It works the same for me on both machines. I haven't had any problems once the desktop has 
been loaded either (I'm using Gnome) and everything in it's current form seems to work as expected.
