When installing FreeBSD v9, can I specify that a particular partition/slice have /var/www/ as a mount point?
Yes, you can!
That's what you're going to face when you'll install FreeBSD 9 and later.
You can decide where to mount single partitions, so yes, you should be able to mount a certain partition as /var/www
Is this helpful? If not, I can give a longer reply.
