Add this to your kernel source and recompile the kernel.

"device puc"

This uses an more detailed approach to probing older bio's
and motherboards PCI slots.
I found this as an solution posted in the questions archives.

Subject: Re: Trouble getting network card to work

Thanks for the suggestion.  I tried this and unfortunately, it did
not work
:(  Same behavior no matter what PCI slot I put it in.  I have
successfully
been able to get an old ISA NE2000 card configured and up in the
system, so
I'm at least able to talk on the network.  However, I'd really like
to get
the PCI card working, so I can get 100Mbps connections.

Anyone have any other ideas?

Thanks
