Where do you enter the "section to configure my grafic card"? In the 
installation routine aka sysinstall? If so, what version of FreeBSD are 
you trying to install?

You might want to use a text based configuration tool. If you are trying 
to install a version of FreeBSD that comes with XFree86, you might be 
able to easily configure your card and monitor by running `xf86cfg 
-textmode`. If you are trying to install, you can do the same 
thing by running `xorgcfg -textmode`



Did you know...

If you play a Windows 2000 CD backwards, you hear satanic messages,
but what's worse is when you play it forward....
