Looking at the release notes:
FreeBSD 4.5 - XFree86 4.1.0
FreeBSD 4.6.2 - XFree86 4.2.0

Do you have your old XF86Config? Unless they've removed the driver
between releases, I should think the config will work under 4.2.x.
What tool are you using?
'/usr/X11R6/bin/XF86Setup' has always worked nicely for me.

There should be some useful documents under '/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/doc',
looks to me as thought it should work, but maybe this new config tool
doesn't know about your card.
