non writable disks

I did something really stupid when I was root. I changed something in 
device.hints. Now I can't change anything on my system. It starts up but 
doesn't start the deamons (apache, ftp, ssh). When I start FreeBSD, it 
looks like I'm in some kind of safe mode. I can't write to the 
harddisks. How can I change this?
I want to make a backup from some files and put them on another 
harddisk, so I can do a clean install.

I hope someone could help me.
