I have Fedora Core 2 2.6.10-1.771_FC2 installed on my
desktop. I tried to add a second network card which is
based on SIS 900 chipset PCI, but it doesn't
automatically detect by the system. I have tried to
search for similar problem in this forum ,but i can't
find thing that can help me.
After i boot into my system. I perform "modprobe
sis900" , and it run successfully. Then i do lsmod,
and i can see it is on the list of module as
i also found a site regarding sis900 bug in kernel 2.6 series..
I read through and i really has no idea about what to do with it. i am not able to post it here due to i am a new member and i have not post more than 5 message yet. I will let you guys know once my post is more than 5 messages , or just PM me.
When i run "Network device control", it only show my first network card which is RealTeck (eth0) and i can't see SIS 900. I think my system is not able to detect the card. Hence, i am not able to configure the IP address of the network card. Thanks

i have checked the log file and i didnt find any error message. Anyway, I can't locate /var/log/syslog , hence i got the log from /var/log/messages . Is this the correct log file i am looking at ? I try to find any log entry with the word "sis900" , but failed to find one.
You should also report this to the maintainer giving details of the hardware, kernel version and methods applied including the errors that you posted above. This helps them identify particular errors and makes development better.
