Than I can change the fstab accordingly to make the change permanent.
2) boot with a rescue cdrom, get a shell prompt and change the /etc/fstab accordingly (yes this file is red before booting the kernel, to instruct the kernel itself to the right root device); But I've an unanswered question from freebsd-questions people: - Why without the boot "-a" flag, why the kernel ask me a device and even it is the correct one vfs_conf.c:vfs_mountroot_ask() give me the error code 6?
