I've recently acquired an AST Ascentia 800N Notebook computer. I've
booted the FreeBSD 5.2.1-RELEASE floppies successfully but cannot get
the computer to detect the following PCMCIA cards:
Orineco WaveLAN Wireless Ethernet/Silver card
Xircom CE10 CreditCard Ethernet Adapter
I know that the Orineco is supported (from what I've gathered from the
lists), but FreeBSD does not seem to detect it.
I've used the drivers.flp driver set and loaded the if_wi.ko module with
still no luck. I also tried the if_xe.ko module to see if it could
pickup the Xircom card and still no luck.
I'm attempting to do a network install (FTP) to get the system up and
running, but so far I cannot get the network devices to detect. PCMCIA
