My PC is connected to Internet using an ADSL modem to connect to an ISP.
It uses IP 10.0.0.somevalue, netmask, no gateway specified
and two DNS server IP addresses which my ISP asked to use.

Is this 'NAT' or 'Bridged'.

Can I enter values and then what values, for host, domain, IPV4 
gateway, Name server, IPV4 address, netmask in the screen presented 
during FreeBSD install
or should i use Cancel in that screen and make changes in system 
files (and what changes in what system files)?
