6.0-rc1 problems with aliased interface

I've just migrated from 5.4 to 6.0-rc1 (to make wireless work through 
ndisgen... and it did :), but now I'm having a problem with dhcp. I'm 
googling now for some solution, the problem is (it seems not to be a problem, 
just a lot of /etc changes I will have to get used to):

I cannot have the same interface to take its data from the dhcp server AND at 
the same time to take an alias address, with 5.4 i had:


in /etc/rc.conf. I understand that we've changed dhclient, so i ran 
"/etc/rc.d/netif restart" and I get the same problem, "dmesg -a" says:

Oct 13 03:03:41 chiba dhclient[978]: connection closed
Oct 13 03:03:41 chiba dhclient[978]: exiting.

and then, I lose the configuration for the interface,

any help would be fine, i keep on reading anyway,

thanks ppl, you're the best
