I am not entirely sure if the module matches the card I have, but I use the sk
driver for Marvell Gigabit LAN in FreeBSD. Make sure you have:
in your kernel config (both are necessary), and rebuild the kernel according
to the handbook:
You will need the source to do this, and if you don't already have it
in /usr/src, then you can use /usr/ports/net/cvsup (which you should learn
anyway, for this purpose and to use the ports collection), or you could
use /stand/sysinstall to get the source from a CD or network location,
although if you do that you should probably update it to the latest
patchlevel of your release using cvsup when you get a chance.
