blfs , about the network


sorry for my poor english



I just finished my lfs and start to bulid with blfs

I want to set my network first so i just install therp-pppoe (because i use ADSL)

but the problem is that my kernel can't detect my "network-card"

my motherboard is "ASUS P4P800",
it says the LAN : 3COM Gigabit Lan PCI Controller supporting 10/100/1000 BASE-T Ethernet

however , i choose all 3com card is useless

(no matter what i choose to "build-in" or "module"
the step i install is

0. check /lib/modules
rename the files
1. unpack the linux-2.6.11.12.tar.bz2
2. go into the dictory , and--> mak mrproper
3. make menuconfig to choose all 3com card
4. make
5. make modules_install
678steps , cp those 3 files to /boot ,as the lfs saying

above all , any steps is wrong ?! )



so I search some information on google,

then i go asus web site to download the driver

that's useless too

the message says :

Install pci-utils http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs.../pciutils.html then as root run update-pciids then (again, as root) run lspci
That will tell you what chipset the kernel sees. If you can't figure out what kernel option you need to enable, post the output of lspci here

Strange that the kernel cant compile the drivers though. You shouldnt be getting any compile errors no matter what options you enable...
