problem with dual boot and network

I have installed FreeBSD on a Toshiba Portege 7020CT laptop, without a
problem, it uses DHCP for its network, and the network works fine.

The machine dual boots to win95 which was a pre FreeBSD install.  It
dual boots into win95 without a problem except, win95 does not configure
the NIC (Toshiba PCI FastEther LAN on Docker).  If I delete the NIC, and
reboot, it finds it, however, on reboot, I get the yellow question mark.

Has anyone had this problem and managed to fix it?

Any help fixing this problem would be much appreciated.  Unfortunately,
some programs I have, only work under windows.

Many thanks,
