try posting a dmesg for the laptop you're running on and/or
the log/debugging outputs that are relevant to your errors.

"no single document to help"? that's hardly the case. take a
look at the openbsd FAQ, http://openbsd.org/faq/index.html ,
or look at the manual pages.

openbsd is not windows or linux. you really should give the
FAQ and manual pages a thorough reading when you're confused.
remain calm :).
