Any suggestions on how to do this without DHCP?  That's really not
an option for me.  Can I delay the rc.conf processing somehow
so that the adaptor has more time to get online?

I have also noticed that this card takes a while to become active... but
been able to get an IP using dhcp anyway... it just takes a bit longer 
than for
the 100Mbit/sec cards.
