Description Allan Jude 2014-03-18 00:20:00 UTC
The disks section of the handbook is full of examples based on the FreeBSD 8.x and prior disk laying (MBR/BSD with separate partitions for / /tmp /usr /var) and the old device names (ad4 instead of ada1)

Updated the docs for all of that, and also added a lot of markup: acronym, replaceable, changed some incorrect literal to filename (for device names), etc.

Added 'mfi' to the RAID list since it is the most popular controller now

Updated the USB instructions to mention USB 3.0 and xhci

Added some missing xml:id to allow cross referencing the GELI section from the installer section etc.
