misc/mc is midnight commander -- I'm not running 4.1, so I cannot with
certainty it's available to you, but I would presume so.
pkg_add -r mc
Second, 'wheel' -- its a security feature. check out the FAQs under
'system administration'. (on the freebsd homepage) To add a user to
the group, the easiest way is to simply edit '/etc/group' directly:
(or whatever your user name is) The change will take effect next time
you log in as 'emon'
