> PS How do you ctl-alt-del from FreeBSD?

NEVER, NEVER, NEVER use ctrl-alt-del from within any OS other than DOS.  
That includes FreeBSD.  NEVER use ctrl-alt-del from within FreeBSD.

To reboot, login as root and type:

shutdown -r now

Rebooting with ctrl-alt-del can corrupt your filesystems and cause data 
loss.  Sorry for yelling, but this is a very important point.
