First, familiarize yourself with installing vanilla FreeBSD.
Specifically the partitioning (bsd labels and such) and boot process.
Second, boot off any FreeBSD-8.x kernel bootable media, and get a shell
Third, unpack the stage3 and continue to install as if it was a Gentoo
install, bear in mind the obvious FreeBSD differences (kernel
compilation, modules loaded in the bootloader, etc).
Troubleshooting should be easy if you got the second step right.
As of now, a bunch of @system currently keyworded ~x86-fbsd doesn't
compile/work as it should. Help (as in: patches, bugs with proper
patches reported upstream) is always welcome.
