When providing a list of disks found, it would help immensely if sysinst printed the drive's description of itself (e.g. wd0 at wdc0 channel 0 drive 0: <IBM-IC25N040ATCS04-0> 38154 MB). This way the user can be positive they're installing onto the drive they want since the kernel messages may scroll by too fast.
Additionally, it'd be nice if there were a format option for platforms that support low level formatting using the scsictl format command.
