Create loader.conf self.
cd /boot/
edit loader.conf
When you reboot your system and you see, that you only have 3 or 2 
seconds instead 10 your loader.conf will be load.
When i remeber right, put bwi_load="YES" in loader.conf

 From command line you can make "kldload bwi" to load and test it 
without reboot.
