Hmm... I already have sis900.o in
/lib/modules/2.4.2-2/kernel/drivers/net. I checked out modules.conf and
there is already a line in there that says 'alias eth0 sis900'. What
does this mean? Did the installation find the card ok? Is it just not
configured for networking yet? How can I test that the OS knows the nic
is working properly and the driver is loaded?
