Hello Subhro,

allright, please forget my single user mode questions! I should have done,
what I've read:
mount /dev/ad0s1a / and mount /dev/ad0s1g /usr, turns ad0s1a to read/write
and allows access to /usr, so then everything is fine.

Sorry for my impatience. And thanks again for your help.

Benjamin
