Onboard Network card Problems


Hi
I have a new Intel machine with an onboard ethernet card (Marvel Yukon, 1GB N/W card) which works with Windows XP. I tried to install Linux on this machine and it does'nt identify the network card.
So I used an other network card to load the OS and installed the latest kernel 2.6.11.5 which has a driver (sk98lin) for the onboard card but linux does not identify the network card.

I would be grateful for any suggestions.

Did you try to load the card as root with
Code:
modprobe <module name>
Then try
Code:
ifconfig
to see if the interfsce shows up
To find the name of the module it should be in /lib/modules/<kernel-name>

Thanks for the quick reply. I made and installed the modules after I did the kernel. In my case I think I have some drivers missing..
I'll try that avenue..

Thanks again!!
