Run "ifconfig"; if your card's driver is built into the GENERIC kernel
(it likely is), then iconfig should list it.  Alternatively, you can
run pciconf -lv.  If you can't find your card in either of these,
please copy the output of those two to the list.

(Hint: a goodway to save the output of a command to a file is:
"command | tee file").
