:You need the following options in your kernel config file to
:enable 'CR' + '~' +  '^b' to ddb.
:device dcons
:device dcons_crom
:Because FreeBSD-4/DragonFlyBSD doesn't support multi-console or
:switching-console in kernel, dcons has to take the console
:at the first stage.
:Multi-console support in FreeBSD-5 is very convenient and worth to
:porting to DragonFly. (as you know in loader)

    Yah.  The loader is kinda a hack, but it is nice.  It would be 
    great if someone could take on a subproject to port the multi-console
    support over.
