Hope there is some one out here can fix my problem.

I have fresh installed FreeBSD 7.1 on my IBM system X3100 server (2 160GB
hard drive), I have decided to do a RAID1 by using the steps
on the handbook :

as the site stated you have to enable the loading of the geom_mirror.ko
kernel module during the system intialization
by putting

#echo 'geom_mirror_load="YES"' >> /boot/loader.conf

UNFORTUNATELY, I forgot that steps now I'm facing a problem how to correct
it where in after I  restart the machine the system refuse to boot, I'm
stack on this loading:

F1 FreeBSD
F5 Drive 1


BTX loader 1.00 BTX version is 1.02
Consoles: Internal video/keyboard
Bios drive C: is disk 0
Bios drive D: is disk 1
Bios 631KB/2094592KB available memory

FreeBSD i386 bootstrap loader, Revision 1.1
( Thu Jan 1 09:55:10 UTC 2009)
Loading /boot/defaults/loader.cof

Do you have any idea how to do it?
Hope there is...

FreeBSd Rock all the time....
