having just installed freebsd for the first time (i installed via ftp) i
successfully reboot, and am asked for my username (login name?) - I did not
set a login name during the installation process, and when i attempt to set
one using the kern and mfsroot.flp disks, I am told that i cannot set that
name until i have installed.  i cannot use sysinstall to change it, since i
cannot get to the command prompt without my login name.

any suggestions?

thanks

aa
