Robert,

  Hmm - The Mac source (I assume your talking Mac OS X) would probably
be the best to start with.  It might be a very easy port to whatever
version of FreeBSD was used for the version of Mac OS X you wrote the
driver for.  FreeBSD 3.X was used as the base for the original merge
of Next code.  I don't know how much divergence there's been since then.
If your lucky with little effort a FreeBSD 3.5 or early 4.x driver might
be had.  With a bit more effort that could be ported to the current
FreeBSD source tree.

  Are you sure that the EVDO card doesen't use an off-the-shelf
ethernet or wireless controller chip already?
 
  Is there a URL for the Mac driver source code?

Ted
