Configuring 3c59x on CentOS 6.2 x86_64


Hello all,
I was asked to install my company's standard Linux distro on a Dell Vostro 230 server here - CentOS.
Since the server is rather modest one with only 1GiB RAM, the choice for CentOS sources were minimal x86_64. I've used the same CD on two other perfect installs.
The problem was that I got no ethernet card after install.
So far, I figured (using a Slackware usb boot flash drive) that the required module is the 3c59x. Also I managed to open the casing and install a different ethernet card, so I can finish installing what I need while trying fo find a solution.
ATM, I got '# yum update' running, so I can install pciutils and figure out what's the on-board network hardware.

Should it be indeed 3Com's 3c59x, how can I configure it? Is there a driver I can install?
