That's no surprise. I suspect the documentation was written by someone
who thought that it was obvious, and didn't care enough to fix it later.

Is there a reason you can't use the built-in ethernet on it? My
understanding is that this model does have SONIC based ethernet
on the motherboard, which should be well supported.
And yes, there are many video cards that mess up the kernel, due
mostly to interrupt handling problems. I have a radius card laying
around, but it's a very low priority to get it working.
