Linux doesn't see the ethernet card

Hello, again,
When I do the command 'ifconfig' without args, I get lo, but no eth0. and when I did the command 'lspci -v' I got the following

00:0F.0 Ethernet controller: Davicom Semiconductor, Inc. Ethernet 100/10 MBit (rev31)
Subsystem: Unknown device 3030:5032
Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 32 IRQ 5
I/O ports at c000 [size=256]
Memory at dffffe00 (32bit, non-prefetchable) [size=256]
Expansion ROM at dff80000 [disabled] [size=256K]
Capabilities: [50] Power Management version 2

is it that I don't have the correct driver, or, do I need to do something in my BIOS to let linux detect the Ethernet card?

thank you
