Why does my 3Com PCI network card not work with my Micron computer?

Certain Micron motherboards have a non-conforming PCI BIOS implementation that does not configure PCI devices at the addresses reported. This causes grief when FreeBSD boots.

To work around this problem, disable the ``Plug and Play Operating System'' flag in the BIOS.
