Shuttle SB86i integrated NIC problem

Iím having problems getting my integrated NIC driver to work with Fedora Core 3. Iím relatively new to Linux so bare with me. The integrated NIC is detected and installed when I use SLES 10 and uses the SYSKonnect 88E053 driver. I realize that the sk98lin driver should work but is not. This is also the Marvell Yukon driver. If I do a modprobe sk98lin it seems to mount and is listed if I do an lsmod. When I do an ifconfig it does not show any information for eth0 just the loopback. If I do a ifconfig eth0 up it does not see the network card. My question is how I get this NIC to work. Please give me some diagnostic tools and suggestions. I have been looking at forms for hours and I'm not making any progress

This is my output for the lspci -v command. It is showing the correct drivers for both of my NIC cards. I see that it is giving me an unknown device 4340. How do I go about fixing this error?

01:00.0 Ethernet controller: Marvell Technology Group Ltd. Gigabit Ethernet Controller (rev 19)
Subsystem: SysKonnect: Unknown device 4340
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 12

Capabilities: [5c] Message Signalled Interrupts: 64bit+ Queue=0/1 Enable-
Capabilities: [e0] Express Legacy Endpoint IRQ 0
Capabilities: [100] Advanced Error Reporting

When I reinstall I get an error saying:

Check kernel header files (not found) [ failed ]
Kernel header not found. Please install the linux header files
development package or crate a symbolic link from the
/usr/src/KERNEL_VERSION directory to linux
Example: ln -s /usr/src/KERNEL_VERSION /usr/src/linux

Installation of sk98lin driver module failed.

Where can I download these header files I have done a yum update.

You mentioned that suse 10 supports the nic, there is a good chance that fedora 5 or wait a week fedora 6 will support it as well.

If you want that install a new module and build it from source you need to add the development repository to yum and then you can select and install the kernel-devel package.
