Hello everyone!

 I hope you'll forgive me for the hyperthetical setting to this email, =
but I, well, worry a lot.
I have on order from cdrom.com the latest burnt release of FreeBSD. I'm =
a fairly seasoned
linux user (2+ years), but this will be my first FreeBSD install.=20

I also have on order from either Jungle.com or Novatech, I can't =
remember which right now,=20
a D-LINK ISA DE-220P network card. I did a search on the FreeBSD mailing =
list archive
and didn't find too much - something which I take to be good if no-one =
has discussed it.

My question is, will this card and BSD work together 'out-of-the-box', =
or close to? Is the card
supported natively in the generic kernel? In my previous installations =
of RedHat and SuSE I'm
used to having a fairly mainstream card (say, an Intel EtherExpress 16) =
which automagically
gets configured (given the I/O address and IRQ which I set up before =
hand) during the install.
Does FreeBSD do something like this, and, does anyone know if the D-Link =
card is on that list
in the latest release?

 Wow, sorry, I didn't mean to babble, nerves. :-)

 Thanks in advance,

Lee.
