static IP address will not go away!

I have a new internet connection and my new provider here will DHCP me an 
address.  I changed /etc/rc.conf to reflect the interface should now DHCP and 
removed the static IP entry. Now when I ifconfig -a the interface It shows 2 IP 
addresses.  The old one I had manually put there and the one it DHCP'd for.  I 
have removed the entries from rc.conf for the static IP.  Can anyone suggest 
where it might be coming from?  

I am using FreeBSD 5.1-RELEASE.  

please respond directly as I am not on the mailing list.
