But long time since I ran 4.x on my laptop but istr man pccardd will tell you about the -z flag which will delay daemonizing pccard until it has probed and attatched to your card and a quick snoop around /etc/defaults/rc.conf would tell you about pccard_ifconfig="NO" which I think you either need to set to "DHCP" or something like pccard_ifconfig="inet 192.168.12.100 netmask 255.255.255.0" _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
