Hiya, I posted a question about this last week. I have done a little homework and I am resubmitting my question with more information and i hope someone can help this time around.
I am building a FreeBSD 5.1 box for a client using a fairly new ASUS Mainboard, that SHOULD according to the HARDWARE.TXT file on my installer CDROM, work with all the hardware chip-sets concerned. precisely, an "Intel 82562EZ LAN PHY". These are the relevant lines i get from "pciconf -lv" : [EMAIL PROTECTED]:8:0: class=0x2020000 card=0x80f81043 chip=0x10508086 rev=0x02 hdr=0x00 vendor = 'Intel Corporation' class = network subclass = ethernet AND this is what i get from "dmesg | more" : pci1: <ACPI PCI bus> on pcib1 pci1: <network, ethernet> at device 8.0 (no driver attached) is there a way i might just install some drivers without reinstalling the whole system? I think someone has made some recently, although i am not familiar with the procedure of obtaining and installing them. I have experience installing from ISO images and adding the odd port but not much beyond that. Here is the link to the mailing.freebsd.cvs-current thread im not sure about: http://groups.google.com/groups?hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&th=c2cc18e7fd2e3621&rnum= 1 any info is greatly appreciated always.
