FreeBSD Boot

Hi.  I know this subject has been addressed in other posts, but I cannot seem to get it to work.  I have inherited a FreeBSD server and I cannot get it to boot properly.  I read the articles on avoiding having to press the F1 key, and I tried to follow the suggestions (note, my disks are labeled "da0s1" etc.  instead of "ad0") as in the following:

boot0cfg -B -b /boot/boot0 /dev/da0

or even

fdisk -B -b /boot/boot0 /dev/da0

Neither of these prevents the user from having to press the F1 key.

I also read the tutorial on how FreeBSD boots, but I cannot find anything that helps.

Any assistance is appreciated.
