According to the handbook , the method you use is obsolete. The
kernel should be rebuild using "make buildkernel". I'm not sure, though,
if rebuilding the kernel in "the new way" solves your problem.
Judging from the Amazon webpage, the book you have came out in 2002,
so I assume it describes the 4.x series of FreeBSD. You might want to
read Chapter 8  of the handbook, which describes how to rebuild your
kernel. Also, you might find Section 19.4  useful, which describes
how to rebuild the base system. After rebuilding the system, take a look

Make sure you read /usr/src/UPDATING if you go from 5.1-Release to a
newer version. Lots of changes went in since then. If you have a
broadband internet connection, you might find it easier to download the
ISO image of the most recent 5.3-BETA built and go from there.
