FreeBSD crossover cable network

Hi everybody,

I am trying to set up a crossover cable network between two computers
running FreeBSD 7.0.
The network cards are configured and they work, i.e. I pinged myself and it

However, when booting up the systems I always get the error message that the
link status
of my network cards has changed to down.

Running `ifconfig` tells me that no carrier has been detected even though
the cable ends are
plugged in.

Any pointers on how to solve this one are welcome.
