What does hwd tell you? I don't use it, personally, but I know it doesn't actually load modules for you, it just tells you which modules are appropriate, and then you load them yourself.

Yeah, put the intel 810 module in the /etc/rc.conf file. Here is the line from mine, the snd-intel8x0 does it...

MODULES=(!usbserial usb_storage sd_mod !parport !ide-scsi forcedeth snd-intel8x0 nvidia)
