Sorry if I'm missing something really basic here, but I've
installed FreeBSD on a new box here with two brand new nics: 

Intel Pro100S
3COM OfficeConnect (3CSOHO100B)

At installation, I had the Intel (fxp0) connected to the switch, and it
was configured during the sysinstall stage. However, the 3COM nic never
showed up after installation in dmesg (as far as I can tell, that is):

 dmesg | grep -i intel
CPU: Intel(R) Pentium(R) III CPU family      1133MHz (1132.96-MHz
686-class CPU)
  Origin = "GenuineIntel"  Id = 0x6b1  Stepping = 1
fxp0: <Intel Pro 10/100B/100+ Ethernet> port 0xdc00-0xdc3f mem
0xfb000000-0xfb0fffff,0xfb100000-0xfb100fff irq 5 at device 9.0 on pci0
 ~ # dmesg | grep -i 3com 
 ~ #

But the 3COM *is* picked up from scanpci:

pci bus 0x0000 cardnum 0x0a function 0x00: vendor 0x10b7 device 0x9300
 3COM  Device unknown
 CardVendor 0x10b7 card 0x9300 (3COM, Card unknown)
  STATUS    0x0290  COMMAND 0x0007
  CLASS     0x02 0x00 0x00  REVISION 0x31
  BIST      0x00  HEADER 0x00  LATENCY 0x20  CACHE 0x08
  BASE0     0x0000e001  addr 0x0000e000  I/O
  BASE1     0xfb101000  addr 0xfb101000  MEM
  MAX_LAT   0x80  MIN_GNT 0x40  INT_PIN 0x01  INT_LINE 0x0a

I've tried moving the 3COM all over the available pci slots, with no

I *do* have the xl driver included in my kernel:
# grep -i fxp TIGER 
device          fxp             # Intel EtherExpress PRO/100B (82557, 82558)
 /usr/src/sys/i386/conf # grep -i xl TIGER 
device          xl              # 3Com 3c90x (``Boomerang'', ``Cyclone'')
 /usr/src/sys/i386/conf # 

Am I missing something?

Thanks for the time.
