I've recently purchased a new AMD64 bases system with an all in one  
motherboard. K8NGM2 on board is the nVidia 10/100 MCP51 ethernet  
running freebsd 6.0-RELEASE-p5 the system doesn't detect the ethernet  
card. When i boot using acip the system reboots, so i'm booting  
without ACIP enabled.

I've been able to install Mandrake and after downloading the drivers  
from nvidia's site, the card works. Also i have an Intel Pro 1000  
installed - which is what i'm connecting to the internet with now.
I tried to install the port net/nvnet driver, however, i get a stop:

lot's of ../src/if_nv.c:XXXX: error: structure has no member named  
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/net/nvnet/work/nvnet/module.
*** Error code 1

any help would be greatly appreciated.
