Hereís another interesting thing. I downloaded,
burned freebsd, and booted up the m0n0 box with it. I
got into a shell and after a while I figured out how
to mount the filesystem. I am used to linux so it
took me a while to find /dev/ad0c. Iíll have to learn
freebsd sometime. Anyway, the config.xml file in the
/conf directory looks fine.
So my thought is that since the syntax and info is
correct, the system should fully boot up interfaces
and all. However, unless I reconfigure the interfaces
after a reboot, the system does not respond to
The only thing out of the ordinary is a file called
reboot.core also in the same /conf directory.
I would appreciate any help at this time.
Thanks in advance.
