Thanks for this information. It really encourages me. I was beginning to
think maybe Debian is too slow in adopting drivers.

Yes it has. I have the same card on another Debian machine which works
fine. The only difference between the machines is that I am using a
different motherboard with AMD K6/233.

I get a message when the kernel loads that indicates that the system has a
problem with PCI devices. It gives warnings about Unknown PCI device. I
think that is where my problem comes from, but then I did not get that
from Redhat that was installed a few hours ago. 

It may be that I have another problem that is obscured by the PCI stuff.
