puc and uart as modules with FreeBSD6.2-REL

I have a two-port PCI serial card. I'm running FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE on i386 and
trying to get the card working using kernel modules puc and uart (after much
Googling this seems like a viable option).
With the GENERIC kernel, the boot process recognises my card as <simple comms,
UART> but can't find the driver for it. When I kldload puc, the card is
recognised as NetMos NM9835:
puc0: <NetMos NM9835 Dual UART and 1284 Printer port> port
irq 12 at device 11.0 on pci0
but when I kldload uart, whether before or after puc, I don't see any new
devices appear, nor do I get any dev.uart.* sysctls.
Am I missing something obvious, or do I need to compile yet another custom
kernel to get this card working?
