[freebsd-hackers] need to edit /etc/ttys for console login

version 7.2 from cd. I installed freebsd 7.2 after booting from cd, going to prompt and doing set console="comconsole".
When I go to edit the /etc/ttys sysinstaller is just putting me back to prior menu. When I try through the sysinstall menu showing functions it says the file does not exist!
Without setting ttyd0 to 'vt100 no' I cant get a login prompt on console once I pull the cd and want access to console - before I can remote ssh in.
Pertinent advice and 'please use other mailer' responses welcome.
