I am a new guy from China, I have installed NetBSD4.0.1, i386 on my laptop, 
everything seems fine except the ethernet card.

It is an Intel Pro/100 VE Network Connection and cannot be detected by GENERIC 
kernel. I have added FXP setting by guide at and rebuild new kernel but 
nothing changed, the new kernel still cannot detect my card.

Here is the info generated by GENERIC kernel,

Hi Joey --

The device isn't even showing up as 'not configured', which could mean one of a few things:

  1. Your motherboard may need the following additional options:
options         PCI_ADDR_FIXUP          # fixup PCI I/O addresses
options         PCI_BUS_FIXUP           # fixup PCI bus numbering
  2. This may be a bug in 4.0.1 that has been fixed in 5.0_BETA.
  3. If the card is built-in, it may be disabled in the BIOS.
  4. The card is installed incorrectly or faulty.

Hope this helps,
