After "sh /etc/netstart" I get : hw.bus.devctl_disable: 1-> 1 (then the lo0 printou) dhclient already running? (pid-221) and ifconfig -a unchanged. have to use sysinsstall. > > One more shot in the dark and believe me this is a shot in the > dark, try > changing the line in rc.conf to ifconfig_sk0="UP" and then through > rc.local run dhclient as a separate script.

I edited rc.conf and changed the line [ifconfig_sk0="DHCP"] to [ifconfig_sk0="UP"] and created /usr/local/etc/rc.d/rc.local to read ifconfig_sk0="DHCP" When I did this I could never i initialize DHCP. Even sysinstall failed. as a side note, during boot, the sequence delays for over a minute during starting DHClient. It can't initialize sk0 but sysinstall can.
