Some questions about jails on FreeBSD9.0-RC1

Hi all,

  I have installed one FreeBSD 9.0-RC1 host to run different services 
(dns, smtp and www only) using jails. This host has two physical nics: 
em0 and em1. em0 is assigned to pyhiscal host, and I would like to 
assign em1 to jails. But em0 and em1 are on different networks: em0 is 
on and em1 in

  I have setup one jail using ezjail. My first surprise is that ezjail 
only installs -RELEASE versions and not RC versions. Ok, I supouse that 
it is normal. But my first question is: can I install a FreeBSD 8.2 jail 
under a FreeBSD 9.0 host??

  And the real question: How do I need to configure network under this 
jail to access it? I have configured ifconfig param for em1 on host's 
rc.conf, but what about the default route under this jail?? I thought to 
use pf rules, but I am not sure.
