Default Using FreeBSD Marvell Driver


I recently bought a Dell XPS M1530 and I decided to put PC-BSD/FreeBSD on it. FreeBSD didn't detect the Marvell 88E80XX driver. I downloaded the FreeBSD 6 driver from Marvell's site. However, it still doesn't work. I do a kldload, but I don't get myk0 displayed. I tried rebooting (with the necessary entries in /boot/loader.conf and /etc/rc.conf) without any success. I also tried the FreeBSD driver (if_msk.ko) and that didn't work either. I'm not sure what to do now. I would really like to get PC-BSD running on this machine. I don't want to use Vista!

Here is the output from pciconf:

none2@pci9:0:0: class=0x020000 card=0x022e1028 chip=0x435411ab rev=0x12 hrd=0x00
    vendor     = 'Marvell Semiconductor (Was: Galileo Technology Ltd)'
    class      = network
    subclass   = ethernet
    cap 01[48] = powerspec 3  supports D0 D1 D2 D3  current D0
    cap 05[5c] = MSI supports 1 message, 64 bit
    cap 10[c0] = PCI-Express 2 legacy endpoint
