If you look at this page (I assumed you are trying to use freebsd6 
i386 version)

http://www.freebsd.org/releases/6.0R/hardware-i386.html

I'm not sure if they are the model you need but you'll see that

the "ex" drivers supports
Intel EtherExpress Pro/10
Intel EtherExpress Pro/10+

the "fxp" drivers supports a couple of etherexpress card

the "ie" drivers support
Intel EtherExpress 16

I think the one you need is the ie since it's for 8 and 16 bits isa card.

if you read the file /usr/src/sys/i386/conf/GENERIC you'll see that 
all of the drivers for the nics are enabled in the generic kernel... 
So I guess your card is not supported.
