Dear Jay & The FreeBSD Communities, Thanks for putting your time and patience to help me out. Anyway, I tried it out, both changing the rc.conf and the dhclient.conf (one at a time). After that (for both of the ways), I did manage to stop the resolv.conf from being overwritten after the PC reboot. However, when I ping 192.168.52.1 or 192.168.52.2, the error msg says that there is no route to both of the IP. Even after I add the default route by using command line ... I am still unable to ping google.com.
Then, I undo everything by using VMWare... (including undo the DHCP configuration in rc.conf) so that I am able to ping google.com again. Since, I desperately needed to connect to the Internet at this point of time, I create a file called resolv.conf in /root ... I am thinking how can I create a script so that it can copy resolv.conf from /root to /etc/resolv.conf every 30 minutes at start up - This is because I don't wanna manually type in "cp /root/resolv.conf /etc/resolv.conf" every 30 minutes. Hope somebody can share with me the simple coding.

Edit /etc/rc.conf, and remove the line relating to the dhcp client. Then add: defaultrouter="192.168.51.2" hostname="boxname!" ifconfig_em0="inet 192.168.52.WHATEVERYOUWANT netmask 255.255.255.0" -- Jay Chandler Network Administrator, Chapman University 714.628.7249 / [EMAIL PROTECTED] Today's Excuse: emissions from GSM-phones --------------------------------- Everyone is raving about the all-new Yahoo!
