if kernel does not have support for your adapter, no network interface will be created; what distro/kernel are you using? boot up some live distro, they always are shipped with plenty of drivers of any kind

First do
lsmod | grep jme
You shold see then if you have jme module loaded. Unless you have it, do modprobe jme. If it will give You an error then post it. You should have this module in your system as it was avaiable even in fedora 14.

If you were messing with kernel then reconfigure it and search for jme module in it. If you were not then leave it alone.

Most of drivers are in kernel and there's no need to download them. They should be built as modules.

by uninstalling the net-tools (i'm on text mode) and re-installing helped me ...

1) yum info net-tools
2) yum remove net-tools
3) yum install net-tools

While net-tools will likely be around for awhile they are deprecated and replaced by the iproute2 suite. Have a look H E R E .
