Help needed upgrading PCI video card
I decided to upgrade the video card in my old Potato box (Pentium 200Mhz) from a Tseng ET4000 W32p to a SiS 6326.
The motherboard doesn't support AGP so both cards are PCI.
I was hoping it would be a simple as shutting down, swapping the cards,
restarting and running XF86Setup to configure X.
It seems that the SiS card has a PCI problem or a conflict with my RealTek
NIC which was working fine with Tseng card
Here's what /proc/pci says when I have the Tseng card and the RealTek card working fine..
PCI devices found:
Bus 0, device 0, function 0:
Host bridge: Intel 82437VX Triton II (rev 2).
Medium devsel. Master Capable. Latency=32.
Bus 0, device 7, function 0:
ISA bridge: Intel 82371SB PIIX3 ISA (rev 1).
Medium devsel. Fast back-to-back capable. Master Capable. No bursts.
Bus 0, device 7, function 1:
IDE interface: Intel 82371SB PIIX3 IDE (rev 0).
Medium devsel. Fast back-to-back capable. Master Capable. Latency=32.
I/O at 0xf000 [0xf001].
Bus 0, device 8, function 0:
VGA compatible controller: Tseng'Lab ET4000W32P rev C (rev 0).
Non-prefetchable 32 bit memory at 0xe0000000 [0xe0000000].
Bus 0, device 10, function 0:
Ethernet controller: Realtek 8029 (rev 0).
Medium devsel. IRQ 11.
I/O at 0x6100 [0x6101].
The following is from syslog on startup with the new SiS card...

Feb 25 20:08:58 monster kernel: ne2k-pci.c: No useable cards found, driver NOT installed.
Unfortunately I don't have the /proc/pci listing with the SiS card installed.
I can put the card back in and print it if it would help.
Can anyone shed some light on how I can resolve this?
What does the 'unknown header type' line in syslog mean?
Thanks in advance
