Problems with pccard & wireless

I have a compaq evo n800 laptop with dual boot: win xp (needed at work) &
linux gentoo (fully working, for my pleasure). Now, willing to substitute
linux with FreeBSD I'm cautiously checking if FreeBSD will work with my
hardware as linux does using as a test the freesbie cd distribution,
configuring it and saving my specific configuration to a usb mass storage
automagically mounted as /mnt/dos.1.
Now it happens that - after having read the somewhat fragmented documentations
on wireless cards setup - I'm unable to set up my Cisco 350 wireless pcmcia
card (I'm sure it is supported!).
I have put in rc.conf
saved the configuration files into the usb mass storage and rebooted.
Even though I can find in rc.conf the pccard stuff as I set it, Freesbie goes
pccard_enable: not found
the same error pops up if I restart the /etc/rc.d/pccard
What shall I do?
