I am running a securelevel (3 in my case) but have been doing it since months...
What's really odd, is that after I dual booted Ubuntu just now, and restarting 
and opting for freebsd I first got this rare message about the kernel that 
couldn't be booted. Then I did a ctrl-alt-del and restarted and opted for 
freebsd again and voila.....I could get back into X!!!
I don't know what was happening, I am suspecting maybe bad hardware and started 
backing things up.

Thanks in advanced though, I am working with GDM right now and I just don't 
know what happened!!

You're sure you didn't set securelevel to something > 0?
X can't work without having access to /dev/io, so having a kernel in
secure mode and X running isn't possible.
