witch module I need

Hi, I am using slackware 10.2 and I have two lan cards, kernel and I don't know witch module I have to use in the rc.netdevice file to detect one of them. The first one is with 8139 chip realtek and I am using 8138too module, but the second one is broadcom netlink gigabit and it is onboard and that is the problem. Thanks.

lspci (as root) should give you the chipset of your card. You can then search the kernel and, failing that, Slackware packages for a driver.

Otherwise, the HCL might help you.
