First of all:

Please don't use HTML mail.

Second: you are using charset="iso-2022-jp", but there is no iso-2022-jp
char in your mail. Thats also wrong.

I think current-users would give you a greater audience.
tech-install is about discussing problems of the installation infrastructure.

You need to add your isapnp card to sys/dev/isapnp/isapnpdevs and regnerate
the header files with 'make -f Makefile.isapnpdevs'

I think you need to add this line:

devcompat	le	PNP828c	0	Lance Ethernet on MELCO LGY-VI board
