5.3 & IBM PC Server 325 Type 8639-1RY - FreeBSD

I have installed 5.3 several times and I am using the built in nic an PCI AMD card. I can not seem to change the card to full-duplex using ifconfig or the built in sysinstall. I noticed there appeared to be other problems with IBM machines. My ? is this a recognized problem or something new? My server also has dual processors in it. Thanks for your time.

    Default 5.3 & IBM PC Server 325 Type 8639-1RY

    I have installed 5.3 several times and I am using the built in
    nic an PCI AMD card.
    I can not seem to change the card to full-duplex using ifconfig
    or the built in sysinstall. I noticed there appeared to be other
    problems with IBM machines.
    My ? is this a recognized problem or something new?

    My server also has dual processors in it.

    Thanks for your time.

    Hi, JM! Thanks for posting.

    I'm not sure that I'm the guy to help you, but I just
    wanted to point out that it might be helpful to give
    us the output of `uname -a` as suggested in the
    default /etc/motd (that you should see when you
    log in), and the relevant parts of `dmesg`, especially
    any mention of the PCI bus, drivers for these NICs and
    anything that looks like it might be an error.

    Also, if you want to check whether the "problem"
    has been reported by anyone else, there is a search
    interface on the website (www.freebsd.org) that might
    help you find any problem reports dealing with a
    specific driver or hardware device.

    I hope you get it working soon.

    To get the built-in NIC working on a 325, you will need to rebuild
    the kernel and comment out device pcn. You need device lnc, but pcn
    has precedence over lnc.

    While your at it, if your 325 is dual processor (most are) you can un-
    comment options SMP and apic.

    Instructions for recompiling your kernel can be found here:
