1.  Set an IRQ for this device in BIOS Setup.
2.  put '-v' on the Boot: prompt, obtain the IRQ and port address of the
card, and give that to the ed0 device.

I think.  2.2, I believe, has a smart ed device driver that can probe the
PCI bus as well.

You gave this info to the ed0 device in -c, right?

Hope this helps.
