FreeBSD on Virtualbox: No network access

Hi all,

I am running FreeBSD 8.1 in Virtualbox OSE as a guest OS on Ubuntu. Now the guest OS does not have network access. When using ifconfig, the virtual ethernet card le0 (when using PCI II) or pcn0 (when using PCnet FAST III) has no IP address. I have configured ifconfig_le0/pcn0="DHCP" in /etc/rc.conf. But it still has no network access. In the virtualbox, I choose the networking mode "Bridged" or "NAT", they don't work, either. I found in the virtualbox the name of this virtual network interface is eth0. But when i use ifconfig, there is no eth0 in this operating system. I am a little mass and struggling in this problem several days and could not find a solution from the Internet.
Hope who have ideas about this could give me some possible solutions.
Thanks in advance.
