N/A - happens during standard sysinstall from CDROM.
When attempting to install 6.2-Release on a "Gigabyte" "S-series" motherboard with an AMD64 Athlon, 1GB of RAM and an Adaptek Ultra Fast Ultra Wide SCSI controller, sysinstall fails to detect the on-board, builtin LAN controller.  When sysinstall gets to the point of asking about network connection possibilities, in only offers SLIP and PPP opportunities.  The motherboard is labeled "M61VME-S32(rev.2.0)".  Any assistance greatly appreciated!
Attempt to install again.
