Re: Edit /boot/loader.conf

I just noticed that even after following Robert's directions below, when I go to edit the grub commands at the grub boot screen, the line "set kFreeBSD.kern.hz=100" does not seem to part of the commands. I have both kFreeBSD-8.2 and kFreeBSD-8.1 installed, giving me boot possibilities in grub (normal boot for each kernel + single-user mode boot for each kernel). And none of the boot commands for each boot possibility contain the kern.hz command. Why would this be so? How can I ensure that the kern.hz parameter is set and passed to the kernel upon boot?

Or can I edit grub's config file?

You can add "set kFreeBSD.kern.hz=100" to /etc/grub.d/40_custom, then
run update-grub to propagate this.
