OK, thanks. Anyone got any ideas as to why one of these cards wouldn't be
detected on boot up by FreeBSD? (could be bios reasons is the only thing I
can think of). Any way of checking the connected devices to the pci bus,
whether there's a driver for them or not?

I've got an Intel PRO/100 S here on my dual athlon machine and
it works great under fbsd 4.5.
