Are you sure it's an "ed4" driver?  Isn't
it just "ed"?

IIRC, "ed" requires "device miibus" in
your kernel config ... is it there?  (Note
that you didn't say *what* PCMCIA NIC
you have....)

Does your 5.X system see any devices
in your PCMCIA slot?  Maybe you need
pccard or cardbus support ... (no expert
here ... my only laptop is in the junk pile
now ... I've never put FBSD on one ...yet!)
