That will work as well.. Have used both file systems for my boot partition. But on this re-install, I went for ffs...

Plus I wanted to use the KISS way of thinking...

You find it simple to install the HDD with FFS, then convert partitions to SFS one after the other by backup / reformat / restore ? And if you do so anyway, why would you leave out the boot partition ?

I find it more simple and straight-forward to install only SFS on the HDD from the beginning, before I even start to install the OS.

That was what I did. I installed the SFS first.
