Please, Aryeh. You've been using freebsd for 10 years and asking a flood 
of questions here. You should know by now to at least provide the basic 

uname -a
error messages
cvsup file
the commands you entered to wind up in this unfortunate situation

Since you of course have proper backups, just pop in a CD and do a 
rescue install. Asking questions like the above will get you nowhere.
