You must not have any SCSI disks.

I have no problems admitting that UNIX man pages or command names
aren't terribly helpful to the new user.  ifconfig is the network
interface configuration command; ``network interface'' in this context
means things like Ethernet.  Sigh.

Chances are you're already configured for it.  It's /dev/cua00, not
/dev/sd0.  Use that, and the rest should be a snap.
