i broke down and did a fresh install of the developer's
preview of 5.0 and the wi driver picks up the d-link
wireless card and works like a champ.  the catch is that 
for some reason the ed driver doesn't seem to want to recognize 
my isa ne2000 (compliant) nic.  i recompiled the kernel making 
sure that "device ed" was specified (along with miibus) and still 
no luck.  i was thinking it may have been a problem with the network card,
but slackware 8 with kernel 2.4.17 (on a different partition) picked up
the network card just fine (as well as the d-link card, via wlan drivers).
i've gone into the dumb dos setup utility for the network
card at least twenty times, specifying just about every
combination of options (enabled/disabled plug-and-play 
and tried a bunch of different port/irq/iomem).  i've also
gone into the bios and tried enabling and disabling pnp-OS.
dmesg (used boot -v) doesn't list anything resembling an
isa nic at all, but kldstat -v has if_ed listed in (seemingly)
all the right places.  i did specify the pertaining values
in /boot/devices for the ed driver as well.  
all this to no avail.  i know there's something i've overlooked..
any hints/suggestions?  thanks!!!
