I'm going to install FreeBSD on a Presario 2100 laptop but it is very
important for me to have my zd1211 USB wireless card to work.

The driver seems to be avaiable on FreeBSD system since version 7.0
(according to http://www.freebsd.org/features.html) but i have a
little doubt about it:

Even if i will able to set up the "zyd" kernel module i think i will
need the firmware to have it works.

Can i use the firmware avaiable here?


or is it Linux-only?

If i can use it, where i have to copy the firmware files?
(I remember on Linux Suse there is a special directory /lib/firmware
and with Debian a zd1211 firmware package is avaiable)

I tried to look for a zd1211 firmware port on http://www.freebsd.org/ports/index.html
without success

Can someone give me some tips?

Thanks for help,
best regards.
