As far as I found out it uses also the sk98lin driver.
But the standard driver that comes along with the debian amd 64 cd
fails the installation.
After using an additional card I was able to upgrade to the gcc-3.4
tree. And after installing
the 2.6.9-9 kernel I could load the sk98lin module with modconf.
But I don't think its working.
I've hit the same problem on the same board. Running a freshly
installed pure64 sarge.

- the driver on the DFS cd states No adapter found
- the driver in 2.6.11 from ftp.kernel.org doesn't do anything -
modprobe sk98lin doesn't report anything on the console or dmesg.
modules are working, as I can load the 3c59x module without problems
for a temporary alternate nic

The sk98lin driver in the kernel doesn't work with this motherboard. Instead, you must use the one from:

(The module is GPL'd, and AFAICT is the same driver as what is in the kernel, except MUCH MUCH newer... so who knows why it isn't in the main kernel tree.)

Yes, I figured as much, but as I also noted, it doesn't work either. Quoting myself:

- the latest driver from syskonnect.com fails during "Compile the kernel" when running install.sh, either expert or user mode. The install.log contains these errors:
-- In function 'sk98lin_resume';
-- error: too many arguments to funcion 'pci_restore_state'
-- a similar error for sk98lin_resume and function pci_save_state

If needed, I can provide more details.
