Have you tried using FreeBSD 4.9?  It is the most stable.

I hope this is the place I can ask a question.

I'm trying to setup FreeBSD on a machine.  It wouldn't even boot from CD
to install because of a network card error.  I bought another network
card (Netgear model FA311) and it seemed to work.  At least I was able
to install FreeBSD.  Upon further inspection, after installation and
re-boot, I noticed that this card was also getting and error.  The
following three lines are what I get:

sis0: <NatSemi DP83815 10/100BaseTX> at device 13.0 on pci0
sis0: couldn't map ports/memory
device_probe_and_attach: sis0 attach returned 6

I admit that I am VERY new to the Unix/Linux stuff.  I know the card
fails, but why?  It's new and from the above three lines I am unable to
find any kind of help to answer the question.

Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated and I thank you in
advance for any you can give me.
