If you are on amd64 like me you may get a panic "Unregistered use of FPU in kernel", the fix for that is in gnats: http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=165622.
PS: Assuming you have kernel sources installed and the patch from that ticket applies to 9.0 too (I only tested head) you can just rebuild and install ndis.ko instead of rebuilding the entire kernel:
[cmd=#]cd /usr/src/sys/modules/ndis && make && make install[/cmd]

I believe threads in this forum detail how to install the driver from ports... and even the bios settings that may work best with it.
