Sorry if I  didn't make my question clear.  I know my NIC card driver,
the problem is when I start up BSD as a guest OS in vmware, it responds that
it can't find a route to the network and I was inquiring if there
was a different  driver needed under vmware bridged-to-network.

Thanks for the response.
