Well, no, of course I didn't. :-/ The recent conversations on the list about
grub and such failed to convey to my brain that I needed to. But, if grub
supports zfs (which I thought it did), can I install grub into a zfs partition?
right now, I just have one big zfs partition that's part of a zraid. I
understood that grub supported zfs. So, I guess i'm not clear on what I need
to do to "create a BIOS boot partition". nb, I _don't_ want to have a single
filesystem on a single disk, I want to be able to handle disk failure, thus
much the point of root-on-ZFS.
