They are. The initial kernel config screen is for ISA and non-PNP devices which
might cause hardware conflicts (it lets you disable devices).
Newer PCI cards aren't shown therem but I bet if you do a "dmesg | less", you'll
find that your NIC is recognized fine. Or try doing a "dhclient" and see
whether you can get a DHCP lease.

Hmm. Bad CD? Anyway, if you've got enough of an install to have a working
system, you can always "make world" to be sure that nothing is missing.
