    I am at the command prompt after it asks me to enter the shell... I cannot just use vi or ee or edit... how am I supposed to edit files to fix this?

    After what asks you to enter the shell?

    Did it fail during boot and prompt you to enter the command shell as single-user to fix the filesystem?

    Using Virtual PC to use both Operating Systems at once!!
    This might be the key to your problems. Rather than pushing your luck with these "multiple OS" systems, why not just find a cheap used computer, and put FreeBSD on it alone? (Look around, and you can probably find a Pentium 100 with 64 MB Ram for about $80)

    The real n-tier system:

    FreeBSD -> PostgreSQL -> [any_language] -> Apache -> Mozilla/XUL

    So it WAS a boot failure. The question is "how did your filesystem get corrupted?". Did you shut down without halting the system?

    I suspect this VirtualPC thing might be the cause of this and future troubles, though, so my recommendation above still stands.
