Ugh...  I've never liked those cards.  I had two in a gateway a couple
of years ago -- the box spontaneously rebooted twice a week until I
replace them with fxp's, at which point the only thing to take it down
was a power supply fan....

Ooh, the CIA is in your computer.

This is wrong.  When you assign IP addresses to interfaces, you give
them a subnet they know they can find on the Ethernet segment connected
to that interface.  Where should your computer send traffic for  Out which interface?

This error occurs when FreeBSD tries to overwrite the routing info set
by the ifconfig statement for the first NIC.  Do a `netstat -rn` to see
relationships between subnets and interfaces.

Use a different IP network for it:

  ifconfig_dc0="inet  netmask"
  ifconfig_rl0="inet    netmask"

Or use a smaller IP network for it:

  ifconfig_dc0="inet  netmask"
  ifconfig_rl0="inet  netmask"

But if is in your routing table, its traffic goes out of
one, and only one, interface.
