While I can't speak for everyone, my first question would be: can you please
describe the problem a little better? What have you tried? What happened
when you tried those things.
I'm unclear as to exactly where you're having trouble.
Also, it's poor form to cross-post (post to multiple lists at once) and
questions@ and freebsd-questions@ are the same list.
