I installed BSD in the hope that I could get my ethernet
working because unix is supposed to be the OS for networking..
but it won't recognize my Ethernet!!

in my kernel i get this message

pci0:10:    vendor=0x10ec, device=0x8029, class=network (ethernet) int a irq 11
[no driver assigned]

Ok...so know how do I setup the ethernet card? I know the input ranges and
the IRQ...but now what? When I do -c in the kernel configuration...on
all of the Ethernet cards it asks for a port address (0x1-0x200)..know
what is that? The I/O addresses are four digits..so what do I place
here? Do I even need to place something here? Do I need to build a custom
kernel and if I do, what line should I place in it? (The card is GENERIC
so I know that it should work with most of the types)

I've had FreeBSD for over a month and haven't gotten it working! Helpme..

A response would be oh so oh so oh so much appreciated!

Thank you!
