    booting the smp kernel just means loading kernel 2.6 as opposed to 2.4 have you tried the steps detalied in the gentoo handbook for network initilization? It's more likely that the network is not set up properly than the actual card not being supported.

    And as of 2004.3, the default kernel is 2.6 and there is no separate SMP kernel.

    Back OT:

    I'd tend to agree that you probably skipped something in your setup of the NIC, though.
