Hi everyone,
I'm running FreeBSD 6.2. and I'm trying in short to change the MAC address of 
my network interface at boot.
So I wrote something like this in my rc.conf file:

ifconfig_xl0="inet 192.168.1.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 ether 00:00:11:11:22:22"

at next boot the interface was not configured at all, so I tried it manually:
ifconfig xl0 inet 192.168.1.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 ether 00:00:11:11:22:22

'ether' is rather another address family for ifconfig. Try:

ifconfig_xl0="inet 192.168.1.1 netmask 0xffffff00"
ifconfig_xl0_alias0="ether 00:00:11:11:22:22"
