Description of problem:
After performing a new install of RH9 on a dual athlon mp2000 box (asus a7m266d
motherboard, with 64bit pci), RH9 cannot find the Syskonnect SK9843 SX card that
I have.  This card shows up in lspci and when I cat /proc/pci

This card works fine in RH7.3 on the same box with the same hardware in the same

Here is the RH7.3 output:
eth1: SysKonnect SK-NET Gigabit Ethernet Adapter SK-9843 SX
      PrefPort:A  RlmtMode:Check Link State
eth1: network connection up using port A
    speed:           1000
    autonegotiation: yes
    duplex mode:     full
    flowctrl:        remote send

When I do a modprobe with RH9 I get the usual "cannot find hardware, you may
need to specify IRQ's etc." message.  I do not have a dump of the error message
or the lspci output from the RH9 box, sorry.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
stock rh9 kernel (2.4.20-6)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot box
2. try to modprobe sk98lin
3. watch it fail

Actual Results:  it failed!

Expected Results:  it should have given me a nice eth0 interface to play with

Additional info:

this box also has a 3ware controller on its 64 bit pci bus.  Again, the same
-exact- hardware configuration works with RH7.3 fine.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
