I Just upgraded my freebsd machine to a new board, this one has an
onboard NIC where as the old one just had a PCI 10/100 nic. I put the
old NIC on the new board as well so I can have 2 running out of the
machine, but I don't know how to set it so that the onboard NIC (vr0) is
the default and the PIC nic (r10) is not, because when I unplug the PCI
one all net connectivity shuts down. Here's my ifconfig and my rc.conf
as always help is much appreciated.

rl0 already is the "default", if by default you mean the nic used when
no nic is specified with command like tcpdump.

This sounds like a routing problem. I am guessing that your default
router is 192.168.42.1. If that is the case the systew will use the
interface "closest" to the router to send packets out, which in this
case is the vr0 interface.

Try `ifconfig vr0 down` instead of unplugging it. Or give rl0 an IP in
the range 192.168.42.2-8.
