I went down to the local discount computer store today and picked up an
ethernet card. They didn't have a big selection (but lots of what they
_did_ have), so I got the one that looked like it had reasonably identifiable
parts on it.
The card is a Linksys EtherFast 10/100 LAN Card (see
http://www.linksys.com/products/fast/lne100tx.htm ), with a Lite-On
chip that is identified as:
Lite-On Communications product 0x0002 (ethernet network, revision 0x20) at pci0
dev 5 function 0 not configured
I've been looking in the sys/dev/pci directory and believe that I have an
acceptable entry in the pcidevs file, but it is unclear to me which file
I can plug the parameters in to make it be recognized, or whether I have
to generate an entirely new file for it.
