I couldn't find a way to replace all of the '!' lines:
1rasputin@idoru:chap2$ cat /etc/ifconfig.wi0
!/usr/sbin/wiconfig wi0 -p 1
!/usr/sbin/wiconfig wi0 -c 1
!/usr/sbin/wiconfig wi0 -s STATIONNAME
inet 10.4.0.6 netmask 255.255.255.248 nwid NETNAME
Though I expect I've missed something - if I didn't need
wiconfig I wouldn't have to mount /usr before networking, which
would make life a lot easier - while I'm wishing,
if I could netboot over 802.11, I'd be very happy indeed.....
