Description of problem:
The sundance module was not included in the package, I had to build it from
source and install it manually. Could we have it included in the next release ?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install kernel-2.6.0-0.test6.1.48.i686.rpm
2. make sure "alias eth0 sundance" is in /etc/modprobe.conf
3. boot the new kernel

Actual Results:  Net services fail on bootup because they cannot init eth0 due
to the sundance module not being loaded. I also tried a manual "modprobe
sundance" and that couldn't locate the module either, and to make sure i double
checked the /lib/modules/2.6.0-0.test6.1.48/kernel/drivers/net/ directory for
any reference to sundance and there was non, so as far as I can tell it's
missing from the package. 

Expected Results:  All the net services should boot fine and eth0 should
function normally using the sundance module.

Additional info:

I built the sundance module with the source from
kernel-source-2.6.0-0.test6.1.48.i386.rpm and installed it and it is now working
fine with my dlink dfe-550tx card.

It'll be in the kernel-unsupported rpm instead...
