Default Clean Install assistance requested

I'd like to preface this request with the statement that I have done somewhere in the neighborhood of 50 FreeBSD installs in the past year and have 5 years of experience as a Systems Administrator.

Is there any way within the FreeBSD installation media to clear out the records of old FreeBSD installs? Short of going to an external utility I have found no means to prevent the install procedure from adding F1, F2, F3, F4, etc to the boot menu.

What I really want is to just completely erase it and start from scratch - anyone know of something on the FreeBSD install media that does this?
