freebsd has those drivers for x86 machines, is that possible to compile
them for ultrasparc machines?
is there any way to get an x86 nic work under freebsd/ultrasparc?
if so, whats the work that i have to do?
is the freebsd-sparc kernel not open source? i cannot compile/custimize it
Thank you very much

I plan to put freebsd5 on a sun e250, this is a pci based ultrasparc
machine, but at the same time, this machine has a non-sun hardware, which
is a network card thats originally for x86 machine. This card is working
probably under solaris w/ some non-official driver, & is supported under
linux/x86. My question is, will this card, intel fastethernet 100, or
3com590 work under freebsd/ultrasparc w/ some tiny tinkering?
It's unlikely, since the drivers for those cards are commented out in
sys/sparc64/conf/GENERIC. The drivers probably need work to use busdma.
and also, can i compile freebsd's kernel like linux?
