But your relating that to the subnet mask later makes total sense, thank
you I feel enlightened.

Sounds advanced and I'm happy leaving things as they are now.
So hear's another question.
Right now I can only access the fbsd box on my lan via ip addr; I set up a
hostname but that doesn't seem to be the same as a symbolic name for the
fbsd machine on my lan. Here's what /etc/rc.conf looks like:
# This file no longer contains just the overrides from /etc/defaults/rc.conf.
ifconfig_ep0="inet 192.168.0.7 netmask 255.255.255.0 media 10baseT/UTP"
I was surprised when after making this change to rc.conf and rebooting the
ip addr got changed to something other than what is specified in rc.conf.
ep0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
inet6 fe80::220:afff:fe4d:24b7%ep0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x1
inet 192.168.0.222 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 192.168.0.255
media: Ethernet 10baseT/UTP
lp0: flags=8810<POINTOPOINT,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
faith0: flags=8002<BROADCAST,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
lo0: flags=8049<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 16384
inet6 ::1 prefixlen 128
inet6 fe80::1%lo0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x4
inet 127.0.0.1 netmask 0xff000000
ppp0: flags=8010<POINTOPOINT,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
sl0: flags=c010<POINTOPOINT,LINK2,MULTICAST> mtu 552
Finally, how do I enable .history for users other than root, and how do I
specify how large the shell history may get?
Thanks in advance,
