Thanks Ted,

Server got here, FreeBSD 6.1 went on easy as you like and then I
installed the intel card when it got here... I havent had to recompile
a thing and its detected the card fine. I've appied an IP address,
cvsup/install a few ports without any issues..


dmesg goodness:
em0: <Intel(R) PRO/1000 Network Connection Version - 3.2.18> port
0x4000-0x401f mem 0xfdee0000-0xfdefffff,0xfdec0000-0xfdedffff irq 16
at device 0.0 on pci2
em0: Ethernet address: 00:15:17:0b:e6:18
em1: <Intel(R) PRO/1000 Network Connection Version - 3.2.18> port
0x4020-0x403f mem 0xfdea0000-0xfdebffff,0xfde80000-0xfde9ffff irq 17
at device 0.1 on pci2
em1: Ethernet address: 00:15:17:0b:e6:19

Should I grab the latest copy of the driver (off intel's website) and
recompile anyway?

Cheers,

Will

Go here:

http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/cvsweb.cgi/src/sys/dev/em/

click on the file you want.  You will probably need all the files there
other than LICENSE and README

right-click download, save to disk, copy to your running freebsd system,
from that system copy to freebsd-formatted floppy disk, unmount floppy disk,
take disk to dl320, mount disk, copy to /usr/src/sys/dev/em/ and recompile
the kernel.
