Did you read the FreeBSD Handbook at freebsd.org? It gives lots of 
basic information on how to install, configure, troubleshoot, and use 
FreeBSD, and it applies to 5.1 as well as 4.x.

What exactly do you want to configure? It looks like you've got 5.1 
installed, so what do you want to do next?

PS: If you're using the root account for everyday work, like posting 
to mailing lists, STOP THIS INSTANT! Read Section 8 of the handbook, 
"Users and Basic Account Management" at 

Even if you're the only one who uses the machine, you should use a 
normal account instead of root, both for security reasons (do you 
want to leave an open root session unattended while you're in the 
john?) and to avoid destroying your system if you make a silly 
mistake. Under Unix, root is GOD, and you have to be careful with 
that kind of power.
