I ran lapci, and the system sees the NIC. The following message was
00:10.0 Ethernet controller: Davicom Semiconductor, Inc.: Unknown
device 9102 (rev 10)
I suspect that the sis900 module loaded, and now I need to look for a
Davicon driver for the NIC.
Thanks for the nudge in the correct direction.
