For novice users PC BSD might be a better alternative. It comes with a nice graphical installer and a GUI tool to configure wireless.

There is a text editor in FreeBSD called:

ee

so just run:

ee /boot/loader.conf

This will get you editing the file. There are instructions inside ee that tell you how to save the file etc.
