I always re-arrange rc.local so it does the ldconfig right after the motd 
stuff...To avoid this problem...

Whenever I boot a GENERIC* kernel one of my 3c503's comes up like this, 
too.  I guess whenever the kernel finds what looks like an ethernet 
interface, but it can't really talk to it that well (like kernel and card 
don't match iomem, irq, etc...) it calls it ie?: Unknown AT&T board...At 
least, that's what I see...your mileage may vary :-)
