Sorry about /dev/hd2 - me on Linux mode.

What I meant to say was /dev/ad2. As I understand it m0n0wall uses
partitions only (treating the entire disk as a slice?) so the standard
image tries to mount /dev/ad0a to get the configuration file. The
modified image at ftp.lin-x-pert.com has been modified so that m0n0wall
tries to mount /dev/ad2a instead.

freebsd ide-disks have slices and partitions: 


ad0 = (disk) 
    s1 = slice 1
        a = first partition in slice 1

so try to boot -s after the boot prompt
mount /dev/ad<n>s1a / 

try n= 1 or 2   
and ls / :)

if lucky you can manipulate /etc/fstab for your good settings 
with something like vi.
