Scan for bad blocks during install? + hostname
I just tried to install PC-BSD 1.0 last night. Things went well (nice installer!) except I'm using an older hard drive that has some bad blocks. (I know. I know. This box isn't for anything critical though.) Consequently my install of PC-BSD is pretty messed up, primarily because I ran the Adaptec SCSI Disk Utility on the drive AFTER the installation and it "repaired" or "moved" a lot of bad blocks (probably containing important PC-BSD files.)
Anyway, I'm wondering if now that the bad blocks are recognized if a subsequent install would go better OR what I'd really like to do is run a bad blocks scan during the installation. Is that possible? Does the installer have an "expert" mode?
Also, my only gripe with the installer so far is that it never asked me what I wanted the hostname of the box to be. I think anyone who takes the time to install PC-BSD is the kind of person who will not be daunted by naming their box. In fact, they'll be like me and really want to be asked what to call it. Consider this a feature request. (So, how do I change the hostname post-install? Same as on GNU/Linux?)
