i have a dedicated server from OVH and have updated freebsd to 9.1 and want
to enable IPFW in the kernel as this is not enabled.
the way i updated the system was to copy /boot/kernel.old to /boot/GENERIC
then followed ch25
went well and the system is up to date.

so i got the 9.1 sources and now in /usr/src/sys/amd64/conf i have a
GENERIC file, but this is too generic, besides i don't have access to the
physical box.

what will be the correct way to include the IPFW to existing /boot/kernel
is there a way to generate the GENERIC file from the existing loaded kernel?

this is what # dmesg brings up

do i need anything else?

any advice much appreciated
