It says it tried to chdir to the kernel directory (usually /boot/kernel)
but couldn't, either because the directory did not exist, or it was
something other than a directory.  If you're trying to boot from
a CD-R/USB image, try newer ones.  If you're booting from a hard drive,
you may want to compare the content of /boot partition with that of
another machine that boots normally to see if there are any missing files.
It's also possible that you may have set a wrong variable in
/boot/loader.conf; try commenting out a few lines you recently added.
