Would this be a concern for the BIOS/apm?

Do you know which FreeBSD 8.1 image you have?

The issue I am having is related to a possible
hacker who has gotten into her system.

That's unlikely unless you burnt the CD/DVD on that system and it
was corruted by malware on the system.

yet. I wanted to ask before I do because of my inexperience with
FreeBSD. Any time that I try to boot the pc after pressing #6 option I get a crash notice saying the following at the end of a massive reset

Is there a reason you are using option #6 instead of allowing it to
boot normally?

init: not found in path  /sbin/init:/sbin/


I'm not sure if that's what was displayed or you've mis-typed the
message but the correct path is:
(and it should be loading /stand/sysinstall)

I suspect you either have a corrupt CD/DVD image or (possibly) are
using the bootonly image instead of one of the installation images.
If you have a valid installation image, the screen or so of output
prior to that message would help with debugging - you could take a
digital photo of the screen and post a link.

It is FREEBSD 8.2 the March release.

Next install I will do a Default bootup and try to install agian.

I saw in the manuals that you want to disable the APCI if the system you have uses apm. This is way I choose option 6

Thanks and I will send the snap shots shortly.
