Hi James.
Thanks for your input.
I fixed the problem!
Just to be sure, I added these 6 line to my config
		<shellcmd>ifconfig tl0 down</shellcmd>
		<shellcmd>ifconfig xl0 down</shellcmd>
		<shellcmd>ifconfig tl0 up</shellcmd>
		<shellcmd>ifconfig xl0 up</shellcmd>
		<shellcmd>ifconfig tl0 media 100BaseTX mediaopt
full-duplex </shellcmd>
		<shellcmd>ifconfig xl0 media 100BaseTX mediaopt
full-duplex </shellcmd>

Now it boots without problems.

Only one problem remains.
I can't reboot the system.
Is hangs at the "rebooting" prompt.

Anywas...thanks a lot.

Regards,

Rene Wieldraaijer

If a ifconfig after boot brings it up, could a workaround be to add a
command in the config.xml to do a ifconfig on boot? (Sorry don't
remember the command to put in the xml, I just know you can...)
