A couple of people suggested to read the ifconfig man page. I do
understand the ifconfig, and I can change the IP settings using
ifconfig without re-booting the system.
What I wondered was a way of editing rc.conf directly and how I can it
be working without re-boot the system. As Nikos suggested, it would
not be a good way if there is only one way to go for it by using
'shutdown now' command; as it kills all the running processes.
