Hmmm... This is the only network adapter I can see in your boot
messages. Which is odd, because the nfe(4) device was first supported
in 7.0 -- were you using ethernet on the machine with 6.3 at all?
Did you patch the 6.3 kernel or use a separate NIC card if so?
If that hasn't caused a light to dawn, could you send the output
ifconfig -a (obfuscate the IP numbers if you really must)
