Repairing "kernel not found"

What is odd is that the machine booted FreeBSD perfectly at least 5-6
times before I ran into the weird "ps" error and then it would not
boot. I still need to figure out what caused the problem in the first
For the moment, is there a way to reinstall just the core 5.4 kernel
distribution files, but not anything else? Is it legitimate to do a
recursive copy of all the boot files on the CD, ie: /dist/boot to the
twed1s1a slice's /boot directory. Then I do the boot0cfg and disklabel
command and then fixes any boot manager config files. Would that work?
