Configure the network card (bge0) and then do something to pass traffic
across the network (eg. ping another host on the network). In our case,
the machine booting at startup and the various network services starting
up was enough to do it within seconds.
I have a copy of the Intel driver we used if you are looking to run this
machine on FreeBSD 6.0 or 6.1; the standard driver in these releases
will not support the Pro/1000 PT (at least the card we used).
