The article on http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/articles/solid-state/x109.html
shows how to prepare a flash disk. On FreebBSD 4.6 and 5.0 I found the sequence
to be a little different. I.e.
One needs the mknod's no longer due to devfs and the commands should be
disklabel -Brw ad0s1 auto; disklabel -e ad0s1; newfs /dev/ad0s1a respectively.
How-To-Repeat: Follow the sequence

I will take this one.
The article reported in this PR now lives in
The attached diff updates the device node used in the instructions as
the BSD partition scheme on MBR layout is used by default.
The bigger issue is that this article is severely out of date, the
instructions are oriented around sysinstall which applies to 8.x or
prior, it refers to a time where "128 megabytes is considered fairly
large - 32 or even 16 megabytes is common" and kern and mfsroot
floppies. Ideally, this page should be removed ( the "Building a File
System from Scratch" page), the information on other pages of the
article should be reviewed for validity.
