In a previous email I mentioned my logic behind picking the HURRICANE SOHO,
because it was the only one which mentioned SOHO in the name.

I did some further research (google: 0x9300 SOHO) and found that this card isn't
 based on the HURRICANE chipset at all:


the author mentions that it's a 'tulip' based card. Tulip is a DEC
ASIC. First make sure the de driver is enabled, and disable your existing xl
driver.  And hope for the best.

If it's still undetected... you'd need to hack into the tulip files... I'd
recommend this if you are comfortable with booting alternate kernels.  That way,
if you break the kernel it's not a big deal.

if_de.c and if_devar.h (both in /usr/src/sys/pci) are the files in question.

good luck
