So, I guess you've tried all the usual stuff, like kldload'ing the snd.ko driver and checking the dmesg output it generates? What's the output of: # pciconf -lv (that will scan your PCI bus and report verbosely on all of the PCI devices it finds. Usually if it can put a name to a card, then that card is supported.) It's not hopeless if pciconf doesn't recognise your card -- it may be a new revision of a similar piece of kit, with a new PCI ID number, but that would work well enough with one of the existing drivers. However, that would take a small kernel patch to make happen. Or you may be S.O.L. in which case, buying a cheapo soundcard that you know is supported would be your best bet.
