    Just because it's displayed by "lspci" doesn't mean that you have support for your network card. Look at G4L to see if you can find what's the name of the driver you need, or something. You may need to re-compile the kernel.

    it would run fine in windows, you've got a driver for it installed, whereas you havent here.

    I think the module you are looking for in 2.4 is 'fealnx'

    try 'modprobe fealnx' and seeing what 'dmesg' says about it

    hope this helps
