| oops, I'm sorry, I forgot to mention: This same card has been
| working perfectly in my old laptop for almost a year now. In fact,
| using the same kernel on the old laptop as on the new laptop, the
| card works. Unfortunately, I don't have windows installed (no CD

| windows on the hd, I couldn't check because it wanted card drivers
| I couldn't provide. :) The card didn't come with a driver disk.
| The old laptop is a Toshiba CS2115 .
| It's just an ethernet card with both 10bt and BNC connectors on
| the connector thingie (for lack of a better name) that connects to
| the card. I sort of assumed that's what the combo refered to,
| since it definitely does not have a modem. :) It may just be a
| misnaming by the probe code, or my brain fart (I dont have the
| machine in front of me at work right now).
