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.
