Ok, the Win2k drivers from the same driver package from Dell (w70n5.inf,
w70n5.sys; DriverVer = 06/11/2003, results in:

# make load
/sbin/kldload -v /usr/src/sys/modules/if_ndis/if_ndis.ko
pci2: <network> at device 3.0 (no driver attached)
Loaded /usr/src/sys/modules/if_ndis/if_ndis.ko, id=11

# ifconfig ndis0
ifconfig: interface ndis0 does not exist

The XP package contained w70n51.inf and w70n51.inf (DriverVer =
06/11/2003,, which worked.
Let me know if there is any more information that would be helpful.

Apologies. Being at home with flu and reading so many mailing list archives that 
they have all merged in to one..... I think I confused myself with a post to 
freebsd-mobile in mid December about getting a Dell TrueMobile 1400 (bcm4309) 
working... Sorry.

Will certainly have a play with WEP (and infrastucture mode if I can get
the NetGear MA101 to play nicely under Linux... euugh!) Will let you
know if I run in to any Project Evil related problems or try any more
