I've used my 3C574 card (I don't recall if it is the B version or not,
but it isn't the newer TX version) in my Dell i8k and my Sony PCG-Z1WA
w/o any problems.

Sounds like a possible resource conflict.  Ugg, damn.  I thought I'd
killed all of those.

: 2)  FreeBSD-5.2.1-RELEASE does usually detect the card as ep0.


: Any suggestions?

Can you send me a dmesg output?  This smells like a resource issue,
but it is hard to know for sure.
