ifconfig hme0 down

if you are using non-standard subnetmasks, you have to put them into the
second command. Also check
Netmasks and networks are basically only if you're dealing with
non-standard subnet masks. For instance, we chopped a 10.x.x.x network
into four class C subnets. Make sure the files stay the same as they
are right now with only the old information changed out for the new, do
not change the style or the ordering of the information.
