Added initial HAL problem page

If you are having trouble with HAL mounting your drives or media, you may need to file a bug report with the maintainers. To do so, follow these steps:

Generate a text file with the following information:

  1. Output of lshal
  2. Output of sysctl -b kern.geom.conftxt
  3. Contents of `cat /etc/fstab1
  4. Output of mount
  5. Full dmesg output
  6. Stop hald, then run it manually using /usr/local/sbin/hald --daemon=no --verbose-yes and provide the output

Once you have the file populated, go ahead and write up a small description of the problem, and submit it to freebsd-gnome@…, or via the Gnome Bug Tracker
