I set up FreeBSD 5.1 . But i can't use ethernet card which is 
SURECOM lan EP-320X-R.
I think it uses realtek chipset because while using with linux it loads 8139too module.

device='803 series PCI Ethernet controller'
subclass ethernet

To set up my Ethernet card in /boot/defaults directory 
loader.conf file i did below changes.
in ******************NETWORKING DRIVERS****************
i changed
if_rl_load="NO" #Realtek 8129/8139 

as if_rl_load="YES" #Realtek 8129/8139 


#shell> with dmesg command(only about ethernet)

Any idea why it doesn't work? 
Good works.
