- NIC is detected by the BIOS, network boot can be configured, FreeBSD
4.11-RELEASE detects, configures, uses em0.

chipset) and Sis0, or Rl0, or fxp0
A couple people have mentioned that their em card takes a bit of time to
come online; does em0 "appear" after waiting a short while after boot?
returns no error (even if successively issued) neither does ifconfig
nor kldstat, nor will ifconfig create em0 ..... work.
No change with/without ACPI at DragonFly boot menu.
Verbose logging either hangs the system, or takes so long it may as well
have done. ;-)
FWIW, a similar issue exists with a Promise Fastrak S150-TX2 Plus.
FreeBSD 4.11 RELEASE (iso) and BIOS can see, configure, utilize, but
MB MSi MS-6378 Rev 3 Athlon 2000+ (clock 1.666 GHz) VIA glue chipset.
- Both symptoms also occur on an A-Open MB with K6-2+ 500 MHz, but that
so old we complaineth not.
OTOH - I am concerned as to how we are (are not) managing the PCI bus
These are conservative MB w 100 MHz FSB - not pushing the limits.
