Just to be clear I'm using PCBSD 10 "Joule". I put the dvd in and got to
an emergency shell. There I could edit /boot/device.hints but not save it
because it was on a read-only file system. (Maybe that was on the dvd.)
I tried mounting some things listed under /dev but that didn't work.
I'm not sure what partition /boot is on.
