No, actually the sk driver, look at the first line of pciconfig output.
ifconfig -a should list a network card called skc0 which you just need
to configure.  If all you need is dhcp then just run dhclient skc0.  Add
the device to rc.conf for it to work on boot.  Use man rc.conf for help
or copy the line for the xl0 network card you already have.

I sense much NT in you.
NT leads to Bluescreen.
Bluescreen leads to downtime.
Downtime leads to suffering.
NT is the path to the darkside.
Powerful Unix is.
