Please do not do what this article says about renaming / to /bsd. This is a bad idea since you would have no kernel to fall back on except /bsd.rd which does not have all the tools to perform a recovery.

A much better method would be to edit /etc/boot.conf and add the line:

boot /

Other than that, not a bad introduction.
