You could download the live cd

Start the computer and insert the boot cd.
After it is done with booting select the option fixit and then Live cd.

It will ask for the live cd.

Then do the following

# chroot /dist
# mount_devfs devfs /dev
>From version FreeBSD 7 You miust use mount -t devfs devfs /dev

# gmirror load
In the following command replace gm0 and s1a to the name of your mirror and the name of your / slice.
If you followed the howto it should be as follows
# mount /dev/mirror/gm0s1a /mnt

# ee /mnt/boot/loader.conf
Now you can edit the loader.conf file on your mirror.

So add the line: 

now exit ee and exit the livecd
# exit
# exit

Shutdown the installer, and reboot your system.
