	Depending on when you bought the card, the correct driver may
be re(4), not skc.
	Check the output of "pciconf -l -v"; mine shows:

re0 at pci0:12:0:  class=0x020000 card=0x00241737 chip=0x10321737 rev=0x10 hdr=0x00
    vendor   = 'Linksys'
    device   = 'EG1032 Gigabit Ethernet'
    class    = network
    subclass = ethernet
