NIC Of NIC/Graphics Card Combo Not Detected


I have a Cirrus Logic GD 5446 graphics card with built-in NIC. Although the graphic card part is detected and works on my Fedora Core 4 system, the network card is not recognised. When I plug in an ethernet cable connected to my modem, the green light (connection) comes on and the amber light (activity) flashes but according to Hardware Browser, it's doesn't come under 'Network devices'. Would installing a driver resolve this issue? There's one here (http://www.driverfiles.net/Video-Ada...839,51,5,.html) but it doesn't specify an operating system.

No, that's a different card. I'm talking about another card - a card that's a graphics and an ethernet card. I need both to work to daisy chain two computers.
