Depends on _which_ cards you refer to. For example, "man bwn" or "man bwi"
mention support for "Broadcom BCM43xx IEEE 802.11b/g" and provide a list
of supported devices. There is additional support via NDIS. Those methods
should be supported on all BSDs.

Oh, and don't say "BSD distros", as you're basically saying "Berkeley Software
Distribution distribution" with it, like "LCD display"... ;-)
