*sigh* my wm0 interface doesn't work in amd64 3.0 cd install.

wm0 is configured in dmesg
accepts an ip with ifconfig
1000baseT full-duplex media is auto selected
switch lights blink when I ping the LAN hosts, no pings return

PR time?

Might I have better luck with a current kernel?
(this device has been without problem in i386)

(FWIW, there is an nVidia on-board interface, which doesn't show
up in dmesg and was not expected to work, when set to auto or
disabled in BIOS)
