Sorry if I didn't make my question clear. I know my NIC card driver,
the problem is when I start up BSD as a guest OS in vmware, it responds that
it can't find a route to the network and I was inquiring if there
was a different driver needed under vmware bridged-to-network.
Thanks for the response.
