nfe internet problems

I have a junko, but reliable, Ethernet card, one that has installed
perfectly as dc0, and runs fine. I've been recently experimenting with
on-board peripherals, and since I have a Asus Striker Extreme mobo, I
thought that the dual Ethernet ports ought to work. The dmesg output
seems to probe nfe0 & nfe1 just fine, so I tried using ifconfig (an old
friend, so you can dismiss thoughts that I did this wrong) to drop the
dc0, and move my stuff over to nfe0. When I do this, the entire machine
instantly locks up solid. I've tried this 3 times now; the machine
doesn't respond to pings, I can't (even typing in the blind) bring dc0
back to life, and it just seems to instantly lock up.
Any suggestions on this?
