I'm trying to implement VBOs into my engine, to render the bsp data much more efficiently. So far, I've succeeded in rendering untextured polygons properly, but when I try passing down a texture coord pointer on any unit, it crashes when I call glDrawElements, and I don't know why.

This is how the texture coord pointer is bound:
glClientActiveTextureARB(unitnum + GL_TEXTURE0_ARB);
glTexCoordPointer(2, GL_FLOAT, sizeof(brushvertex_t), OFFSET(brushvertex_t, texcoord));

This is how I bind the VBO:
glGenBuffersARB( 1, &m_uiBufferIndex );
glBindBufferARB( GL_ARRAY_BUFFER_ARB, m_uiBufferIndex );
glBufferDataARB( GL_ARRAY_BUFFER_ARB, sizeof(brushvertex_t)*iNumVerts, m_pBufferData, GL_STATIC_DRAW_ARB );

And this is how I render it:
glDrawElements(GL_TRIANGLES, m_pFacesExtraData[p->flags].indexes.size(), GL_UNSIGNED_INT, &m_pFacesExtraData[p->flags].indexes[0] );

And I have absolutely no idea why the crash occurs. No matter what I try setting the offset to, it won't work. When I was using vertex arrays, everything seemed to work completely fine, but now it's crashing all the time.

Actually I feel embarrassed. There was a drawback functionality left in the code, and back when I made this engine, I seem to have made some function calls in the wrong order, so, for example, texture pointers were set before the vbo was bound, I only found it out once I started testing the original code too. :P
Thanks for the help though.
