Duh, back to the basics, right? :) Sorry for bothering
anyone with this. Should've thought of it myself. Very
confusing process for a relative newbie. Each book I
read seems to follow a different procedure. Like I said
in another answer to a help message about this, I think
I'd be better off for now just sticking to the fbsd docs.
Thanks for the help.
