What version of fbsd are you using? On 2.2.8, you will need to edit
/etc/rc.conf file and add a line like this to it:
XXXX is your NIC card.
On 3.X it should be the same, but I can't tell you exactly because I
still had a chance to play with 3.X yet. I don't think rc.conf is used
in 3.x anymore but is there for backward compatibility.
