[dmesg and pciconf -vl output snipped] 

This was discussed around June 8 on the -current and -questions lists, and Mat Kanner published a patch on -current on June 8.  

The original poster discovered (as I
did) that the patch will correctly identify the card;  however, according to the original poster on another list, the card appears to actually
depend on Windows to work properly, so that somewhat-short answer appears to be that it cannot work without Windows.  If you or anyone else
discovers otherwise please let the rest of us with that card know.
