GENERIC 5.0 i386 kernel, Apr/26'2009 18:50:08 UTC
Netbooting, aka PXE booting, shows during kernel load that it's getting all the 
DHCP/ TCP/IP parameters, but the default gateway is not set (or passed) on 
further so the OS can get outside the subnet.  See repeat and *workaround* to 
see clarity.
remove all ifconfig variables from rc.conf, remove all ifconfig files from /etc 
(so a disked-system won't have any network connectivity).  Boot from PXE, the 
green output lists the IP, subnet, gateway and DNS being received from DHCP.  
Check your routing table post-boot (netstat -rnf inet).  No default gateway is 
apply the ifconfig_ifX in rc.conf, or the ifconfig.ifX in /etc to re-obtain the 
DHCP settings.
