Testing a fresh install of PCBSD9-CURRENT-20110113-x64-DVD on HP xw8200,
dual-Xeon @ 3.4 GHz, 4 Gb RAM, SCSI disk system, nVidia Quadro FX3500.

(1) Installation went fine.  This is a fast machine with a fast disk
subsystem, but it still took approximately one hour to complete the
installation of all packages + ports +src.

(2) After the installer progress bar reached 100%, the installation of
packages continued for another 30 minutes thereafter.

(3) The "nvidia" driver (the system selection) did not work with the Quadro
FX3500 card, but generic driver "nv" did work.

(4) The GUI splash screen menus for where to select which desktop
environment to boot is not very obvious to a new user, but long-time PCBSD
users will know where to look.  Perhaps an appropriate label on the splash
screen would be beneficial.
