BSD and networking

I am trying to get the BSD system going, and it not working as well as I has hoped. It does not see my network card, and if I can not get it to see the network card I will have to bail on the BSD idea. I would like to use BSD for it, but if it does not see the network card, I will have to go back to Linux, since the main reason for this computer is for network stuff (the VPN stuff) But for now I am compiling a new kernel, I have included all the network drivers, if none of them work I will have to kill the idea. The problem might be that the computer has a SMC-Ultra card, and those have always been nasty to get going, so I can not blame BSD for that, but I don’t want to spend any money on this system, since I got the box free, there should never be a reason to put more money into a computer accessory then you put into the computer, also the computer is only a Pentium 1 (maybe 2 if I am lucky) 300MHz.
