Thank you very much for your answers.

Unfortunately both advices don't help.
Although may be it was mistyping in DoubleF's letter:
cause error while config execution. But I found that there is
and with it I got the wanted result :)

I hope that good description for the most of options in kernel for
FreeBSD 5.0 will be released soon. :)

AGH> Hello,
AGH> The only way I know how is to modify your kernel config file to reflect:
AGH> "options        FAT_CURSOR"

AGH> Check out the GENERIC conf.
