Ultra 1 - second ethernet not recognized



Hi!

I have a Sun Ultra1[0] here, and want to make a firewall out of it.
 So I put in a second ethernet, SBus, "270-1881-02 rev 1" (AUI/BNC),
 but the kernel doesn't seem to recognize it (eg only eth0 shows up
 in dmesg[1]).

A "test net" via OpenBoot shows
.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.
Using AUI Ethernet Interface                                                    
 Internal loopback test -- succeeded.                                           
 External loopback test -- Lost Carrier  (transceiver cable problem?)           
send failed.                                                                    
                                                                                
Using TP Ethernet Interface                                                     
 Internal loopback test -- succeeded.                                           
 External loopback test -- succeeded.                  
.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.

which looks suspiciously like it's only the on-board interface (one 
 ethernet, AUI/TP, is built in).

Is there a magic incantation I have to make (some module to load),
 or does that smell like the magic smoke has escaped this card?
 Any pointers appreciated.
