Hi Bill and All,
I thank you and all for your concern and support. I think when I was given the
post configuration setup during the last phase of the sysinstall, I made the
mistake of not saving the result.
I will setup on FreeBSD-6.2 tomorrow again. I will monitor the process and keep
alert during the post installation setup especially on the section when adding
users on the system.
