 I used the command *dd if=*PCBSD9.0-BETA1-x64-USBFULL.img* of=/dev/da0
bs=5k* as given in the handbook.  I didn't even consider checking the size
of the image as compared to my USB thumbdrive, which as someone else pointed
out, was incompatible. My USB stick is only 4Gb, therefore the last 0.6Gb
were silently truncated. Since its now fixed, I suppose I ought to try it
again :)

thank you for the speedy size correction of that image..
