The precise answer depends on what version of FreeBSD you're running, which you failed to mention. You can work it out from the FreeBSD FAQ entry titled "I made a mistake in rc.conf, or another startup file, and now I cannot edit it because the filesystem is read-only. What should I do?", which you can read at: http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/faq/admin.html#RCCONF-READONLY _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
