It's possible that it *is* covered by the sk98lin driver, but not the
in-kernel tree. SysKonnect have a more recent sk98lin available from
their site than that in the kernel. It supports the Marvell PCI-E
gigabit interface I have, at least (whereas skge & in-kernel sk98lin do
not).

I do note that sk98lin is not being built in the rawhide kernel package
(I don't have an FC4 box to hand so I can't tell if it's being built for
that), but skge is. It could be a small matter of adding the PCI IDs to
the skge driver to get it working. I'll try it once I have a spare moment.
