I intend to try it, I turned off the machine when I left the office though so I could not try it right away, have to wait till tomorrow otherwise I would have tried and not asked. Believe me I think I have typed every possible command that I found in the handbook and on the freebsddiary site, twice, its a wonder the machine even still boots after 2 days with me typing arbitraty commands and ee'ing into every .conf file I read about :).
