That should be fine. Since it's showing up properly at the console,
it appears you did it right. You sure tl is the interface plugged in
Sounds like you're using a hard drive or CF setup. If you need to get
it going quickly, a CD/floppy setup might be easier to deal with. The
floppy is FAT, you can edit the config.xml from another box and throw
the floppy back in there. Then later you can get a USB keyboard and
setup the hard drive.
Or you can put the hard drive in another box and use a FreeBSD live CD
to boot that box and mount and edit the config.xml directly. I've
done that before and it works.
