I have that mainboard (but the 600 MHz Samuel 2 version) and happily
run Debian GNU/Linux on it.

I can confirm that both Ethernet interfaces work with the via-rhine
module of the 2.6.3 kernel which I'm using. One is recognised as:
00:0f.0 Ethernet controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT6105 [Rhine-III]
and the other one as:
00:12.0 Ethernet controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT6102 [Rhine-II]
So, perhaps the kernel you (the original poster) are using is too old?
