Hello Jamie, welcome to OpenBSD...

General messages like this should go to the misc@openbsd.org mailing list,

OS itself.

You have a good friend you haven't yet met, which is the FAQ.  In the FAQ
there is the answer to your specific question at


In general, I'd read the entire FAQ to learn about all sorts of things.  It
really will help out in a rather large number of cases.

Read that and I think you'll be OK.  Once you get your system up, don't
forget to look at afterboot in section 8 of the man pages.
