w00t!

I was playing around with some options on a 4.4-RELEASE disc1 ISO I'd
burnt.  I have now got it working.  I'm just about to test if it'll work
on 5.0-DP2.  A guy on eu.openprojects.net in #freebsd told me to disable
all unrequired devices in visual config.  I did this and it actually
didn't even detect this time, so I switched slots, rebooted and did the
same.  After this it actually detected and DHCP worked to resolve my IP.
I used the 10BaseT port (UTP) instead of my preferred 10Base2 (BNC).

Maybe you could try the same.
