Realtek RTL8169 - no driver attached

I would like to install FreeBSD 6.2 on a i386 system that includes a
Realtek RTL8169 network card, but when booting from the install CD or
from the installed system, there seems to be a problem with the driver:
pci0: <network, ethernet> at device 13.0 (no driver attached)
> pciconf -l -v
none0 at pci0:13:0: class=0x020000 card=0x816910ec chip=0x816910ec rev=0x10
vendor = 'Realtek Semiconductor'
device = 'RTL8169 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter'
class = 'Network'
subclass = ethernet
> kldload if_re
kldload: can't load if_re: File exists
I've been running a FreeBSD server in production for over a year now and
this is the first time ever I even have to think about hardware. The
card itself is a cheap no-name card.
What am I doing wrong ?
Thank you very much,
