Please send the /proc/pci entry.
I'll add it to the /p  and run eepro100-diag

Please don't believe anything you read there.  That PCI ID is provided
by random submissions.  The entries range from slightly wrong to
horribly inaccurate.

There is an actual list of vendor IDs from the IEEE and PCI SIG.  There 
is no reason to use the guess of the first submitter as the definitive

If it's just a new ID, it will be in the next version.  Adding new ID
without a changed underlying design is fast -- we don't go
through the whole testing cycle.

Note that eepro100-diag was updated two days ago in preparation for the
LinuxWorld update set.  If this is a new ID, I'll slip it in before
announcing the new versions.
