Realtek 8168 Driver For FreeBSD 6,1

I have a network appliance application that utilizes FreeBSD 6.1 on a  
motherboard with an embedded Realtek 8168-based NIC.   Unfortunately  
the NIC is not recognized by the Realtek drivers in the kernel, and it  
seems that later versions of the driver don't really support this  
particular version properly.   Would it be possible for someone to  
help us out with getting this working on FreeBSD 6.1?  Here is the  
information on the NIC from pciconf:

class: 0x020000
card: 0x816815d9
chip: 0x816810ec
rev: 0x02

Thank you,
