I've attached a tbz file with both the dmesg output and the kernel 
configuration. Note that the kernel configuration is for a kernel that 
definitely is working with this card

No. ifconfig eth0 up reports that the card is busy. dhclient eth0 reports the 
network down.

The more I think on this, I believe it's a bug for the kernel maintainers, not 
the installers. While it *IS* a bug, the fact that the installer works with 
the 2.6 kernel implies to me that it would work if it had a working 2.4 
kernel. Maybe I'm wrong, but at least it sounds logical to me.
