Thanks Spidey and Doug.

Since this problem, I reinstalled the system.
Well, I didn't reinstalled. I just upgraded with the same
version of that one already installed.

Everytime I try to install, FreeBSD 2.2.6 refuses me
at the partition step as it sees more than 1 DOS partitions.

But, the "Upgrade" option worked. It just recopied
everything I had before --> waste of time.... :(

Finally, I made it installed and rebooted.

Oops, it doesn't accept me as a root.
Did it really re-established the passwd file or not ?
I don't know. One thing is clear that I cannot enter
as a root.

For this, I couldn't use "single user" or "default root"
option, because each time I reboot one of those, the root_device
becomes read only and I cannot modify my password. Oh, god...

I again upgraded the system, without forget to change the root
password in TTYV4 using passwd.

Now, it works again, but, I really don't know what happened.
As you say Doug, it can be a problem of X. but, how can we explain
that the system worked before and got stuck without any modification ?

Thanks again for your answer, and see you ;)
