It feels like this stuff is over my head, but I really want to make this work so I want to do this.

I have about 1GB of swap and 150MB for /var so is that enough?
Then I have to do # sysctl ddb.console=1, make my machine freeze on purpose with the ifconfig ath0 command or pulling out my wireless card (both cause my system to freeze up), press Ctrl+Alt+Esc (I'm not sure what a "serial console" is), and then do some ddb(4) commands (not sure which ones yet, I was hoping you could help with that), and make it log everything about the freeze with dmesg. Then examine the logs with gdb. What do I need to modify in the kernel in order for gdb to work?
