my card is supported but...

I've been trying to get my network card working for some time now. The problems started straight away when probing couldn't find my card which is a Sis900 PCI card. I'm using Kernel 2.2.19 and the SiS website insists that this kernel supports my card, but I can't find it in the rc.modules file. The site makes some reference to extracting sis900.c and sis900.h, but I don't have a clue where to find these files or how to "extract" them even if I do find them.

I've thought about upgrading to a 2.4.X kernel which seem to have better SiS support, but I really don't want to go through the trouble if I'm just going to be stonewalled again. Please Help!

they should be in your /usr/src/linux/drivers/net directory...
the easiest thing to do probably in your situation is to recompile your current kernel to include them..

but again, better support is with the 2.4.x kernel.. in which if you have slack 8, it also includes the 2.4.5 kernel...
