Need help with an SMC EtherPower PCI card!!

Does anyone know what I have to do to get an SMC Etherpower PCI board
to work with Slackware 1.2.1?  When I did the boot/root to install
Slackware, I saw that it recognized the ethernet card.  However, once
I rebuilt the kernel with support for WD and SMC cards, it no longer
sees it.  Is there a special kernel I need to get to use this card?

1. need help with SMC Etherpower PCI card

well, i put the PC together yesterday, and at this point everything
looks good except for the ethernet setup.

AMD K6-166, ASUS P55T2P4 motherboard

i have an SMC EtherPower 10/100 (SMC 9332BDT)

distribution is the Slackware 96 CD rom

the software sees the ethernet card, but when i try and ping a local
name server, all i see is the card switching between 10Base T and 100 Base T
(eventually this card will be plugged into a 100 Base T setup, but right
now i'm using 10 Base T.)

i've used this RJ45 cable before for a visitor who had a linux laptop,
and i checked the lights on both the card and on the hub, and they're
both pretty happy looking campers, showing just what i expect.

any suggestions, anyone?
