Ok, I edited rc.conf and rebooted; when trying to ping myself by ip or as 
localhost got "Permission denied" so I then did "ipfw disable firewall" and 
was able to do  those two pings. And when trying to then ping some other 
nodes again got "No route to host".

my local area network: (win-xp) (win-95) (freebsd-4.8/mini) (win-98) (win-95)

these five boxes each have a nic and all connect to a switch.

#netstat -rn

Hey Luke, wanna hear something funny? I didn't want to take 20 minutes to 
write all this so I spent an hour and a half instead trying to mount a 
floppy and then copy the output from these commands onto it so I could then 
copy & paste the verbiage onto my email from a windows box. Didn't get it 
working though. 8^}
