More info on my system to see if anyone can help: SuSE 6.3, kernel 2.2.16,
MSI 6167? motherboard, Athlon 650, ATI AIW Pro, SB PCI Sound Card, 128 MB

Please send any ideas my way! I am a college student and I don't want to
have to buy a different network card! (I bought this card when I built the
system knowing I would have ethernet in the dorm and never had a chance to
test it under linux until I got to school yesterday.)
