new server setup questions

I'm trying to setup a new server, and I'm having some problems mostly with the
network card. (machine specs follow) I can't get a driver to work for the
integrated network card. I've spent a number of hours on google / "the
complete freeBSD" / "the freeBSD handbook". the handbook (section 11.8
outlines using ndis (project evil) drivers. I tried using this. I went
through ndisgen, and everything seemed to work. I then tried to use kldload
and got the error message:
"kldload: can't load file.ko :operation not permitted"
of course I did all of this as root. I am using the amd64 version of freeBSD
(is this my first mistake?) and the 64 bit version of the drivers.
as a side note, the supplied driver disk includes a source version of the
linux driver. is there any way to use this?
Any help or suggestions greatly appreciated.
