The help text for straight MBR partitioning (which has never worked for
FreeBSD) has been modified for BETA2 to suggest "freebsd" (which has
always been the default) instead of "freebsd-ufs" etc.
It does let you set mountpoints, and displays them, and always has, but
not for bsdlabel container partitions (MBR type "freebsd"), since they
aren't filesystems. Is this what you were trying to do?
