I have an onboard NIC that works just fine. This is a card I picked
up for use with SkyOS, which i found out after the fact would not
work with the D model either, and it has failed detection in BSD and
Linux. I was very surprised when the Open Solaris Live CD detected
the card but said there was no driver installed for it. Also, if it
would be helpful if I posted the hardware portion of dmesg I would be
happy to do so.
All in all Alpha7 would be called Beta7 by just about anybody else.
That is one of the things I really like about PC-BSD, you people do a
heck of a good job with your coding. :-)
