[PC-BSD Public] oddity in http://docs.pcbsd.org/guide/ section 11 (networking)

Hi,

In section 11 (Networking) of the guide, there is the following text:

[snip]

IP address: The IP address you want for the selected network
interface. This IP address cannot be a public IP and needs to belong
to private network IP addresses.

[/snip]

now, I have a real /28 and *want* to use one out of my allocation. I
do this in FreeBSD and OpenBSD. Can I not do this in PC-BSD as
described in section 11 of the handbook? Or do I have to go via the
ifconfig/rc.conf route?

thanks
