USB ethernet and embedded ether

The embedded ethernet card on my laptop is starting to flake, so I bought a new D-Link DUB-E100 USB ethernet card. Decided to update my system at the same time, and did a network install of Suse 9.1 using the usb ethernet (after loading the usbnet module).

All went well to start - different story once Suse got running.

It detects my embedded ethernet card (which cannot be removed in the bios) and detects my DUB-E100.

The problem: the DUB-E100 is listed as a modem (i.e., won't load as an eth device, won't use DHCP, and essentially is worthless for me).

Any suggestions on how to make it understand the DUB-E100 is an ethernet card (not a modem)? I'm sure I can manage on my own to make it the primary ethernet device once that problem is fixed.
