Ok just tryed that out, no luck =\ maybe you have something setup
differently then me right now 5.2 rc2 is on the system my rc.conf currently
has:
pccard_enable="YES"
pccard_ifconfig="DHCP"
pccard_mem="0xd8000"

Is there something else you have maybe in pccard.conf or in your kernel.
Right now i just have the generic kernel loaded i tryed dhclient ed1 and
just get kernel: ed1: device timeout.
Anyway would love to hear your config as this is the most frustrating
problem I  have encountered while using fbsd and just want to find the
solution. thanks -paul
