I'm learning NetBSD (from Debian), doing a test install on an old 171 MB
Reading the guide, there appear to be two ways to configure networking:
put things like hostname and ifconfig in rc.conf
put things in separate files like /etc/myname, /etc/ifconfig.xxx
I'm wondering why there are two different ways and the pros and cons of
choosing either. Is one historical and the other more recent?
