Not at the moment.

Is wm likely to work with it given a pci id?

The comments in FreeBSD's "em" driver suggest that it is a
ICH-8 variant. And wm(4) support ICH-8 in NetBSD 5.0_BETA.
It is probably worth trying out.

The 82566 is just the PHY released in Q2 of 2006 and it seems to be
working just fine on my old motherboard. The integrated MAC is probably
your problem and I don't really do any support for that part. I can find
out which ICH it is, though, if you want me to dig around.
