During the first boot after installing RedHat 7.1, kudzu came up and
claimed that the integrated NIC i have had been removed from the system.
Needless to say, nothing had changed on the system as far as hardware goes.
I told it to make no changes and life was good. The output of lspci -n for
the card is "01:07.0 Class 0280: 0e11:ae43 (rev 10)", which is a Compaq
lspci -v output?

Hm, no problem here with our ProLiant 1600R onboard TLAN:
01:07.0 Network controller: Compaq Computer Corporation ProLiant Integrated
Netelligent 10/100 (rev 10)
Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 64, IRQ 9
I/O ports at 2800 [size=16]
Memory at c6dfddf0 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16]
Expansion ROM at <unassigned> [disabled] [size=64K]
Hm.... what does /etc/sysconfig/hwconf look like, as well as the output
of 'kudzu -p -b pci'?

Unless i misread, i doesn't really look like there's a problem, does it? Don't
know what happened, but i swear that kudzu claimed that the device was no longer
present. If You would like to close this one, that's fine with me. I'm busy
trying to find a job in Germany so i can move there.
The problem is that it shows up as a 'Network controller' instead of an
ethernet card; we can't automatically assume all generic 'network controller's
are ethernet cards, because that's also what ISDN cards show up as. It's
a problem with the PCI class the card reports itself as.
