Supported Realtek? / pccard support

Is Realtek 8139 supported by FreeBSD 5.3 -BETA4?
Sorry for this newbie question, but I'm reading the NOTES file, and
while the devices "rl" and "re" are in the GENERIC kernel-config file,
under NOTES file doesn't appear.

Also I'm trying to run a cardbus D-Link DFE-670TXD, supported by 4.x
series, and when I insert the card into pcmcia port, I can't obtain any
log (because the pcmcia don't run?)

The system is a fresh install from a FreeBSD-5.3 BETA-4 ISO, whitout any
compilation, and one reboot for a rc.conf addition (pccard_ether="YES").

The message into dmesg, when "discover" the cbb0 and cardbus0 (the
laptop is an Acer Aspire 1605 with two pcmcia ports) tell something

cbb0: <TI1520 PCI-cardBus Bridge> irq 16 at device 9.0 on pci0
cardbus0: <CardBus bus> on cbb0
pccard0: <16-bit PCCARD bus on cbb0
cbb: Unable to map IRQ...
cbb0: <TI1520 PCI-cardBus Bridge> irq 17 at device 9.1 on pci0
cardbus0: <CardBus bus> on cbb1
pccard0: <16-bit PCCARD bus on cbb1

The laptop is the same I wrote some time ago because doesn't recognize
the Realtek 8139 ethernet (this ethernet isn't a cardbus, is integrated
in the hardware).

Thank you!! (sorry for my bad english)

BSD is what you get when a bunch of Unix hackers sit down to try to port
a Unix system to the PC. Linux is what you get when a bunch of PC
hackers sit down and try to write a Unix system for the PC
