	Thanks for your response.  I just went in to single-user mode
and got em0 to configure (same as before), but now, I can ping another
host on the same subnet.  I will try all your suggestions and also
temporarily turn off ipfw.  I did look at the rules and I did remember
to change them to fit the new address when the system left here.  If
that's it, I should have a working system all be it a totally open

	I will let you know what happens.
