hello again,

first, i can't seem to get my modem to do anything, i think it's an irq
conflict, but don't really want to mess around with the config files too
much if i don't have to. in 5.1 sysinstall(8) there seems to be no option
to change or confirm the info probed and sysinstall "skips the kernel",
not sure if that is the right expression, and sysinstall starts with the
automatic defaults.  i have attached the dmesg file.  help, i am new to
FreeBSD so i may need to be walked through the steps.

second, i am having trouble starting my X manager from my user account,
the root account starts fine with startx command, but when i try startx
from the user account it takes me to x, not the prefered windows manager.
