Before you run the netstart command, you need to kill all processes
named dhclient.  You can accomplish this with a:

#killall -9 dhclient

And then, #sh /etc/netstart

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.

I tried this but it didn't change anything...if I did it right? 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. Go
figure?

You are absolutely right! My other boxes are all frankenputers.
