There should be a "warden" command you can run via the CLI, and you can 
run "warden menu" to bring up a small dialog-based menu system as well. 
You can run "warden" by itself for a listing of commands, and then 
"warden help <command>" for more specific information. As for docs, its 
still on my todo list, I plan on adding them to wiki.pcbsd.org over the 
summer :)
