I don't know if you caught my follow up post which indicated that I was
able to get an older Linksys card working. The problem card is a
"EtherFast 10/100 PC Card" (Model: PCMPC100).

I will have to review my steps on FreeBSD to see if I can find the info. 
I installed
it, got it working, and then set up Mandrake Linux, as that was 
for an 'easy install' to get X working. I did that, and have a config 
so now I'm going back to NetBSD...
