I am a  new user of Free BSD. I just completed the install of Free BSD on a
Dell  PC but I cannot get past the initial login prompt. I typed the user
name I supplied during the installation process to no avail. In the last two
days, I have browsed the web and used some of the suggestion provided. I
also consulted the documentation in this web site.


To put it simply, I am missing the syntax for the user name and password.
Can someone help with the step by step process of getting past the original
login screen?
