I have a -current from 2004. (because of this ACPI stuff 
breaking by bfe card :) but I can't load if_ndis anymore..

If I use ndiscvt to build an include file from the Win2k driver (W70N5.*) I get..
link_elf: symbol ndis_set_info undefined

[inchoate 14:49] /usr/src/sys/modules/ndis >objdump -x ndis.ko |grep ndis_set_info
000090c8 l     F .text  0000016c ndis_set_info

[inchoate 14:49] /usr/src/sys/modules/if_ndis >objdump -x if_ndis.ko |grep ndis_set_info
00000000         *UND*  00000000 ndis_set_info

If I use the XP driver (W70N51.INF) it works.
pci0: Failed to set ACPI power state D3 on (null): AE_BAD_PARAMETER
ndis0: <Intel(R) PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3A Mini PCI Adapter> mem 0xfaffc000-0xfaffcfff irq 11 at device 3.0 on pci2
ndis0: NDIS API version: 5.1
ndis0: Ethernet address: 00:04:23:a4:12:74
ndis0: 11b rates: 11Mbps 2Mbps 1Mbps

It's for a Intel Centrino Pro 2100 mini PCI adapter, the driver comes 
from Dell. Hmm, I had a link that pointed to it but it isn't valid and 
I can no longer find the actual driver on their web pages (only the user
guide). I've put them at
