How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run Fedora Core Installer

Actual Results:  NIC not recognized, no networking.

Expected Results:  NIC recognized, networking enabled.

If a module was included in the kernel, it would upgrade with the
kernel each time, and not have to be rebuilt locally.

Module should be included in the kernel, modprobe sk98lin.  Need to
update so that the onboard 940s are properly recognized.
