I have just installed FreeBSD on a Compaq Deskpro XL 6150 computer.
I loaded it from the FreeBSD FTP site directly on to the computer.
The system seems to run fine, but it is not able to reach my network.
It is a small TCP/IP network, running a few PCs on Windows 98, with an NT
4.0 Server,
and a few Cisco routers.  This network is for training purposes only and is
connected to anything outside the room.  I can not PING any IPs, including
system NIC card itself (  I can ping the localhost

The system is set for IPv4
Hostname SIPServer.pig.com (I'm trying to build a demo VOIP network)

uname -a gives me:
FreeBSD SIPServer.pig.com 5.0-RELEASE
FreeBSD 5.0-RELEASE #0: Thu Jan 16 22:16:53 GMT
[EMAIL PROTECTED]:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC i386

The error messages are on boot up:
