mine's not got the "+" sign and appears that it should
be the via-rhine driver.
Unfortunately I keep getting "device busy" messages
trying to modprobe/insmod it.
Also of concern is that dmesg, messages file, etc don't
mention it, the bios pci scan reports it at irq 10
but that's it, /proc/interrupts doesn't list 10 as in use.
I have basically just moved my disks
from my old PC to a new one with this new ethernet card
so I'm wondering if there's some "reconfigure" type
thing needed (like solaris' "boot -r")
I'm sure there's some obvious thing I'm missing but
I'm buggered if I can think of it!
