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,
