ok i got back into the box however when i try;

ifconfig em0 unplumb i receive:

ifconfig: SIOCIFDESTROY: Invalid argument

I was booted in the midst of the process (ssh kickoff) and think that I 
might have been partially done with the plumb and 'up' ifconfig steps. 
how can i undo all that 'plumb' and 'up' commands did for ifconfig?
