i got intel etherexpress pro/10 combo card, which i got from old server, but i can't get it probed in my home computer. i guess it's not the hw prblem of the card because the link light switches on when i plug tp cable in it.

during boot, i got the following:
atapci0: <Intel PIIX3 ATA controller> port 0xffa0-0xffaf at device 7.1 on pci0
ata0: at 0x1f0 irq 14 on atapci0

it seems to me, that everything is ok, bot i can't figure out how to make the system load the appropriate driver. from hardware notes, i suppose that the driver (module)should be ex -- even man 4 ex lists this card, but i do not have this module in /boot/kernel/ and compiling it into kernel doesn't change anything (it's still not detected :-{) i'm using freebsd 5.0- release.

thanx for any opinions.
