In fact, you need to do both. If you edit rc.conf, you need to reboot to
activate the changes. with my method, you don't need to reboot but you
need to edit rc.conf anyway so the aliases aren't loaded the next time
you boot the machine.
I always try to avoid rebooting. This isn't windows =0)
And I try to teach others ways to admin a host without rebooting for
every change they make.
