What do you mean by "multi-user login prompt"?

When you reboot the system (e.g. press ctrl-alt-delete or issued the
"shutdown -r now" command), it should present a boot menu with
numbered choices. What happens if you select the one corresponding to
"boot in single user mode". Or do you never get to the menu? If you
never got that menu, you are almost certainly in single-user mode.

Is there anything in /boot/loader.conf ?
