Well, this got the network card going!....Get the updated Install-8.16.tar driver from the Marvell www site and, after fighting some other hiccups here and there ( I found that the option 1 install worked), install this updated driver! Once in place the first step of recognizing/registering this hardware device is possible and then the network service activation can follow.

I have a nice new Asus motherboard and have easily installed FC3. However hiccup number one is that the aforementioned Ethernet card is not recognized and I can not seem to get any hardware configurator I try to recognize it. The hardware browser is blind to this PCI-E chip. The adapter shows up in an lspci but that is about it. The driver is supposed to be SK98lin but it is never auto loaded. When I modprobe it I can detect no response or life for an ethx of any kind in /proc/network/sk98lin. My FC3 (2.6.9-1.667) seems to have V6.23 sk98lin driver while the Marvel website has a V8.16 version. I suspect, however that getting a newer version driver may not do much. Can anyone give me any easier way to get this driver going without having to do the k-compile thing (which you might guess, is tedious without www connectivity)
