Network configuration is saved in `/etc/rc.conf' in FreeBSD.  Before you
make any changes to that file, however, make sure that:

    (1) You have a safe backup copy of this file.

    (2) You have read and understood the relevant parts of the FreeBSD
        Handbook.  Pay special attention to ``Setting Up Network
        Interface Cards'':
