 I recently bought more than 10 pcs of LNE100TX (ver 4.1 this is printed on the 
card itself) and found that my RH6.2 doesn't recognize it. I try to compile the 
tulip.c (v0.92) and found that it return me this error after I do the "insmod 
>> unresolved symbol pci_drv_unregister
>> unresolved symbol pci_drv_register

I saw one posting and found that I need to compile pci-netif.c (gcc -DMODULE -
D__KERNEL__ -O6 -c pci-netif.c). I compile it but now I received another error 
message from after doing the "insmod pci-netif.o" The error message is 
>> couldn't find the kernel version the module was compiled for

What have I miss during the compilation ??

Secondly, when my system boot up the it show the below message for the PCI 
Device Listing:

Bus No Device No ... Vendor ID  Device ID   ... IRQ
  0      19      ...  1317        0985      ...  5   

I did the source code for tulip.c and found that this vendor id and device id 
are referring to ADMtek Centaur-P. 

Anyone who has any idea how to solve this problem , please please please reply. 
I need help urgently. I bought this NIC card being fooled by the logo Tested 
with Linux on the box cover thinking that support and driver is given. What a 
mistake ?
