My first guess would be that there are two *different* LAN controllers -
one connected to the PCI bus and the other via PCI-E most likely.

The one that appears in ifconfig is probably the PCI one, while the PCI-E
connected one is likely a newer chip which is not supported by 6.2.

Checking the documentation for the motherboard verifies this guess. Your MB
has a Marvell 88E001 (connected via PCI) which is supported by FreeBSD 6.2
using the sk(4) driver.  It also has a Marvell 88E056 PCI-E chip which is
not supported by 6.2.

The good news is that 7-CURRENT and 6-stable should both support the 88E056
NIC using the msk(4) driver.
