You shouldn't need to "get a driver" because it's the
operating system's job to provide the drivers. FreeBSD
comes with lots of drivers for Ethernet cards.

After booting the machine with a FreeBSD system (or even
after installing it), try

	# ifconfig -a

and look for which Ethernet interfaces have been success-
fully created. Missing something? Compare to the hardware
specification which lists the kinds of installed network
hardware (should be in your documentation provided with
the server).

Check those lists:

http://www.freebsd.org/releases/8.0R/hardware.html#ETHERNET

http://www.freebsd.org/relnotes/CURRENT/hardware/support.html#ETHERNET

You can always use "man <driver>" to find out more about
drivers on an installed system, or you can use the hyperlinks
in that lists to access the online documentation of the drivers.
