 Hi Joey --
 The device isn't even showing up as 'not configured', which could mean 
 one of a few things:
    1. Your motherboard may need the following additional options:
 options        PCI_ADDR_FIXUP          # fixup PCI I/O addresses
 options        PCI_BUS_FIXUP           # fixup PCI bus numbering
    2. This may be a bug in 4.0.1 that has been fixed in 5.0_BETA.
    3. If the card is built-in, it may be disabled in the BIOS.
    4. The card is installed incorrectly or faulty.
 Hope this helps,
