i am running freebsd 5.0, when i look at or run the dmesg command i get the

6 hw RW Node
  1 machine R  *Handler String
  2 model R  *Handler String
  3 ncpu R  *Handler Int
  4 byteorder R  *Handler Int
  5 physmem R  *Handler

    287 start_memory RW *Handler
    288 start_16_io RW *Handler
    289 start_32_io RW *Handler
    290 debug RW *Handler

what have i configured wrong, or is the new dmesg not like the older
versions. I checked the output of another bsd system(openbsd) and it looks
like the older versions did
