- to turn the service on at boot make sure you have this line in the
sshd_enable = "YES"
If you have the manual pages installed, then run 'man rc.conf' and read
up on everyone's favorite config file. I prefer browsing the web for
man pages. I do a man -k at the command line and then go to the browser
to look for the manual.
- tweak the port #, key size etc. You probably don't need to edit this,
but you should look at it.

Do sysinstall again and choose 'Post-install'. Then try to add the
packages again and write it down.

You can look at a virtual terminal on, I think vtty4, which is reached
through shift-F5? Maybe that's the one the colored install screen is
on. If this isn't the case, just go down the line holding down shift
and trying the function keys. You'll see the error messages.
