I've now placed one of the cards I have in a FreeBSD 7.0 machine - it's 
still not recognized (booted) properly.
Here's the boot log:
Jan 15 15:08:41 test kernel: txp0: <3Com 3cR990B-TXM Etherlink with 3XP 
Processor> port 0x2080-0x20ff mem 0x42000000-0x4200007f irq 11 at device 
14.0 on pci0
Jan 15 15:08:41 test kernel: txp0: not waiting for boot
Jan 15 15:08:41 test kernel: device_attach: txp0 attach returned -1

Here's the related pciconf:
txp0 at pci0:0:14:0:       class=0x020000 card=0x100010b7 chip=0x990410b7 
rev=0x03 hdr=0x00
    vendor     = '3COM Corp, Networking Division'
    device     = '3CR990B-TM-X Etherlink 10/100 with 3XP Processor'
    class      = network
    subclass   = ethernet

If you're interested in fixing this problem, you might have a look at 
the driver included in the Linux kernel - it works fine with this card.
Unfortunately I no longer need to use those cards, and can afford to 
spend any time on this issue, what I could help is with testing. I could 
also provide an SSH access to a machine with this card installed, if 
this would be of any help resolving the issue.

Kind regards,
