Here's a problematic machine:

nfe0@pci0:8:0:  class=0x068000 card=0xcb8410de chip=0x037310de  
rev=0xa2 hdr=0x00
     vendor   = 'NVIDIA Corporation'
     class    = bridge
nfe1@pci0:9:0:  class=0x068000 card=0xcb8410de chip=0x037310de  
rev=0xa2 hdr=0x00
     vendor   = 'NVIDIA Corporation'
     class    = bridge



Just the other day, on a machine running amd64, I got it working   
with no problems:

nfe0@pci0:8:0:  class=0x068000 card=0x82391043 chip=0x037310de  
rev=0xa2 hdr=0x00
     vendor   = 'NVIDIA Corporation'
     class    = bridge
nfe1@pci0:9:0:  class=0x068000 card=0x82391043 chip=0x037310de  
rev=0xa2 hdr=0x00
     vendor   = 'NVIDIA Corporation'
     class    = bridge

Both run FreeBSD-6.2 release with the patches added. Same  
motherboards, m2n sli-deluxe. So, might it have something to do with  
i386 vs. amd64? For me, it works with amd64, and not with i386 (on at  
least two machines). It is detected properly on  all machines, but  
the network does not work.
