ensure you have ABLE 1.98 or better
versions prior to this did not have a proper ifconfig command.

Here if I want to do a *static* configured IP address I would use:

>ifconfig ne0 tftpserver
looking for net.ne0

and that seems to work fine. Mostly I use dhcp so teh ifconfig command
doesnt botehr me much.
