That makes sense. Rob has given the answer earlier. You need to load the 
driver in /boot/loader.conf.

No, /boot/loader.conf. But is your card a hda? It would help a lot if you post 
the output of "pciconf -lv" relevant for the soundcard and/or show us what 
exactly you are doing in /usr/local/etc/rc.d with that driver.

For example, this is mine:
[EMAIL PROTECTED]:31:5: class=0x040100 card=0x016a1028 chip=0x24c58086 rev=0x01 
    vendor     = 'Intel Corporation'
    device     = '82801DB/DBL/DBM (ICH4/ICH4-L/ICH4-M) AC'97 Audio Controller'
    class      = multimedia
    subclass   = audio

Driver loaded by:
# grep ich /boot/loader.conf

Ac97 is a codec used on a multitude of soundcards to produce pcm audio AFAIK, 
so there's no specific driver for it.
