It won't pick up an ip from my provider.  When I boot up, ifconfig in dmesg
shows an ip, but nothing will connect.  If I do an 'ifconfig -a' it will
show up
OK, that clears that up.

To clarify:
if you type:
killall dhclient
ifconfig vr0 inet netmaks
Does it display the address, or is there still no ip addy on
Yes I can configure it for an address...I think it has something to do with

Try adding a line at this point in the file (actually, I don't think it
really matters exactly _where_ you put it in the file)
network_interfaces="vr0 rl0 lo0"
And see if things start acting nicer.  This may solve the problem, let
me know either way.
