Create a custom kernel file and make sure you add "device pcm", your card
will automagically be detected at boot time (assuming you have no BIOS 
quirks, I had to set PnP to "no" in mine) and then you can use MAKEDEV to
create the device nodes.

Please see the FreeBSD Handbook (linked from www.freebsd.org) for further
(full) details with regards to soundcards and rolling a custom kernel.
