Installing Wireless Card Driver in FreeBSD


I'm trying to find out if this card is supported on FreeBSD.


I haven't begun to install FreeBSD, as I'll do that when I get my new MotherBoard.
So one of my major questions is if that card is supported.
When I had Linux Mandriva 10.1 it needed ndiswrapper to install, so I decided if I was gonna have to switch between OS's it might as well teach me something important like CLI's and their hidden power...

Another thing, which I'm supposing works is PCI-E...
Since I'm trading my MotherBoard due to it's lack of support for that technology!
I'm not totaly aware of the supported Hardware list having a reference to adapters, or being that extensive about motherboards and its on-board items, e.g. Sound Card...

So! If any of this strikes you as tottaly unsupported, in no way possible is it instalable in FreeBSD, please let me know!

Another thing...
Nvidia 6600GT Gamers Edition 120MB DDR3 PCI-E <-> Is this supported?

If ur not big on writting, like myself....

Just post a url towards some info I could use!!

I'm not sure about the wireless card... but FreeBSD also has an ndis wrapper so if it worked that way the card will still be usable.

The nvidia card should work fine as we have the binary nvidia drivers.
