Jared's got the good short version. And the full answer is here, in
the Install.html notes:
...It's about 2/3 down the page, titled "Post installation steps"
It should cover other questions too.
Glad to help...

! Generally, the following will do the trick:
! Mount the root filesystem read-write: mount -u /
! Mount any other local filesystems: mount -a
! Set the terminal type: export TERM=vt100; tset
! Edit /etc/rc.conf: vi /etc/rc.conf
! Add 'rc_configured=YES' to this file, save it, and reboot.
! Hope this helps,
