    Hi,

    most likely you are running at a security level thats too high
    check your setting in /etc/rc.conf
    Start it at -1 or disable it as a start.

    If thats not it you might not have the device in your kernel...
    add
    device io and recompile.

    # faisal gillani: 

    /dev/io has been made a module a while back. Either load mem/io
    with kldload or rebuild your kernel with an additional
    device io
    device mem

    in your kernel config.
