Never mind,  I've just found what I needed in man rc.conf, I've now  
set dumpdev and dumpdir in rc.conf and am rebuilding the kernel with  

It's been a long time since I've looked at a core dump, and I don't  
think I've ever looked at a kernel dump.  And now I'm not sure  
whether I want the system to crash again (so that I can try to figure  
out what the problem is) or not.
