Unhappy OpenBSD 3.6\i386 - Davicom DM9009 interface issue...

advice on the NIC...
Hey, was hoping if someone could help out, I think I've tried enough searching and the such....Wouldv'e posted dmesg output if I could've gotten online.....
Anyway I wrote it down... :

dc0 at pci0 dev 13 function 0 "Davicom DM9009" rev 0x31pci_intr_map: no mapping for pin A: couldn't map interrupt

I've tried googling... I don't think this is an issue with drivers right?...there is no /etc/hostname.dc0....

Any input on this matter would be greatly appreciated...

Ok, So I've come to the conclusion that this is a problem in this old Compaq Presario's 2266 BIOS settings..Here's where it gets hairy though..

1) It seems that because the User Password is Set, a bunch of features are off limits...Such as the oh so necessary "PnP OS setting"....(sigh)..

2) On a positive side, The IRQ settings are adjustable, being that the error has something to do with the PCI setting, right?

What should I do to get the BIOS back to its original state? I've tried reformatting this measly 4G hard drive about 4 times now to no avail..
