ne*000 refers to some sort of nic-
ne1000 and ne2000 are cheap network cards ,
compatible to something novell put out long ago.
i *think* the chips are realtec ,
but i might be mistaken.
the line NO NE*000 Card found at I/O ... means you configured your
to look for a ne-card at i/o250.
which is not there, your card is a different one.
so, find out which card is builtin,
(maybe they have the specs in the net)
buy a cheap one(a ne2000 would be nice, since your system's
already looking for one)
disable the onboard one,
change the settings in the system to look at any i/o.
