ooh ok well you don't have _any_ networking setup by the looks of things. Are you on cable or a LAN of some description? If so you will need to give your box some basic information edit /etc/resolve.conf and enter your NS details. Edit rc.conf and add information about IP address and default router and reboot and you should be good to go.
