Thanks for the replies everyone. I think I am going to try and do 
something with devd.conf first. I'm going through the /etc/rc.d/netif, 
/etc/network.subr scripts at the moment so I can get a clear picture of 
how exactly FreeBSD (6.0 is what I'm using) sets up interfaces at boot, to 
prevent myself from screwing anything up ;)
