There isn't enough information here to work with.  Can you give more
detail on what you did, and what the results were?  I think every
sentence could use some expansion.

You may find it helpful to refer to the "How to get the best results
from freebsd-questions" article, now part of the official FreeBSD
documentation (and regularly posted to this list by its author).
