Is it detected by FreeBSD?  What's the output of pciconf -lv?  It should 
be pretty easy to spot.  If it's not detected then there's not much 
FreeBSD can do, I would think.  Play with the BIOS; complain to the 
manufacturer; remove the NVidia card....

I have had no end of trouble with a 6600; nv did start but locked up 
inside 5 mins - haven't tried 7.3 yet.  nvidia on i386 will stop getting 
interrupts after heavy ethernet traffic which only seemed to happen 
after I went SMP; thread on the nvidia forums ends with no particular 
resolution.  Sympathy, but no help :-(
