The documentation apparently refers to an older branch of FreeBSD
(4.x), and you're installing 5.x.  Most people don't need to disable
or change device settings in order to boot FreeBSD, but if you do, you
can set the appropriate hint.* variable at the loader prompt when you
boot for the first time, and then customize the settings permanently
in /boot/device.hints.
