it is default system instalation for instance 9.0  02.2011 snapshot
no kernel changes or anything just trying 'nfe'
im only using OpenBSD atm
FreeBSD is on a different hdd
while installing FBSD ... while dhclient start system freez
when installing developer +eng doc+ no network +reboot
after reboot
1=>>'dhclient nfe0' freez the system
2=>>'ifconfig nfe0 inet 192.168.1.xx netmask' freez
..after reboot
when installing just let Ethernet auto dhcp == freez

after installing without eth>>
login: root
dhclient nfe0 == freez
ifconfig nfe0 inet netmask freez

after installing the system without the ethernet
ifconfig nfe0 down
ifconfig nfe0 inet
ifconfig nfe0 inet netmask
ifconfig nfe0 up
 >>>>>works after
 3=>>ifconfig nfe0 down
 ifconfig nfe0 inet xx)
 ifconfig nfe0 inet netmask
 ..it works for a while
 (if ** ifconfig nfe0 inet 192.xxx.xxx.xxx netmask xxxxxxxxxxx <<at once <<< it hangs up the system
 dhclient nfe0 hangs up system(it works well only after )
 I can't set inet and netmask at once
 even if I set it as
 ifconfig nfe0 inet X
 ifconfig nfe0 inet X netmask X
 after reboot it hangs up the system
 >>it works for a while
 sometimes it takes ++MB of memory >> when it reachs max == it hangs up
 or just freez watching top or wathever .. making tea
