Mandrake 10 doesn't configure my ethernet card (IBM)

Hi. I installed Mandrake 10 Official, but it doesn't recognize the ethernet card. All I know is it's IBM. I don't see any other writing on it. This car has worked in the past with Windows and Mandrake 9.2. When I start up, wverthing checks out....[OK] until the line: bringing up interface eth0 ......[FAILED], so it is not seeing the card. Am I missing the drivers? Sorry, I don't know which model card this is.

Also, how do I get lspci? Is this another package I have yet to load?

Mandrake 10 is a bit dated now, so if possible try Mandriva 2008. lspci is usually included by default in most distros. You can run the command as root or as a normal user by entering the full path /sbin/lspci. To check for the sound card you can try
$/sbin/lspci | grep -i sound
$/sbin/lspci | grep -i audio
