I installed FreeBSD 6.1 on 2 different HD's 3.5 GB. When the reboot is supposed to happen the Boot loader doesnot come up. Is there a way to fix this from a single user prompt or any other way? I have never had this happen to FreeBSD and I have been installing it on many boxes since version 3.4.

This box is for a firewall on a small office lan with only a minimal FreeBSD 6.1 installed to run the firewall. It is an HP box Vectra 486/66.

I have looked at several how to's in my FreeBSD reference books, but most say put a dos partition on the drive as maybe the bios need to see the parameters more clearly. Any Ideas besides that? I do have a box that cant run above FreeBSD 4.11 as a print server in an installation. But FreeBSD 5* would not install on it at all. This installs but won't boot.
