I don't know much about DHCP and where to configure it.
Just an idea: maybe with /stand/sysinstall?
An other idea is to google search the web for some sample config files for DHCP, and manually prepare/edit those files (I always find this simpler than learning which utility does what and how)

Please post your answer

something like
DHCP=yes
in /etc/rc.conf
or use
/stand/sysinstall
...
The answer will then be searchable for others...
