The 8.0 handbook has to be updated to reflect new serial port names.

>From the 8.0 release notes is the following
[amd64, i386] The uart(4) is now the default driver for serial port devices in favor of the sio(4) driver. Note that the device nodes have been renamed with /dev/cuauN and /dev/ttyuN.
Just read the 8.0 handbook about config mouse and you will see 7.2 /dev node names shown
