 I have been having the same problem.  I did get the installation to work
 using another network card in the pcmcia slot.  
 I know it is not the 5705K issue, because it is detected properly as a
 5705M_A1 under linux and loads correctly using that driver.  
 I've been trying to determine how bus_alloc_resource operates, however
 it has proven to be a bit difficult to locate in the kernel source tree.
 I haven't done very much operating systems work at this point and the 
 structural differences between the BSD driver and the Broadcom written
 linux driver are enough to be relatively confusing.  
 If I could find enough information regarding bus_alloc_resource and a
 sensible way to perform debugging I'd be happy to help out in
 investigating the problem.
