First of all let me thank you for the answers, Linux has a really great community
okmyx: you were right
scuzzman: how could lspci be used ? it outputs something like
00:0b.0 Ethernet controller: 3com Corporation 3c905 100BaseTX [boomerang]
00:0c.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co,
Can this be always used ? Does this mean that I have the 3com card on the 2nd PCI slot (and the realtek card on the 3rd PCI slot) counting from the AGP Slot downwards ?
michaelk: My network cards are compiled into the kernel, so checking /etc/modules.conf didn't help
