Thanks for the link, I didn't see it before, but I did successfully get 
PC-BSD 7.x installed on my Macbook, although it ran hot and flaky.
PC-BSD 8.x seems to run great in live mode, but I can't get it to 
install. I also use rEFIt and FreeBSD 8.2 RC2 is installed.

Please let me know what happens.

I'm planning on putting up a tutorial on pcbsd.org once I'm 
successful and I'll mention those links in that post.
