I got the same problem not a long time ago on an ALR-7210 (Gateway Servers)
which also had this intel integrated device. I had a look at /proc/pci which
gave me the confirmation that the network card was seen. I got no luck using
kernel 2.2 series whereas redhat managed to work on it straight as a module
... I sticked kernel 2.4 on it and it worked like a charm !
I have a side question though ... where's the linux support on compaq's
support site ?
