I am not sure I am doing this right. When I boot I choose option 8 and  
get to the boot loader. At that point I only have load and not kdload.  
With load neither sound option seems to let me boot. Also, I know I  
used to boot to a console on the older versions of PC-BSD but this  
version does not seem to let me get to a console where I can edit the  
file with vi. I will try again later this morning.
