Well, I have the same card and it is CURRENTLY not working. However,
when I first upgraded to 2.6.16 it DID work. I was forced to go back
to .15 (and my other NIC) due to some problems with the NVIDIA drivers
for my video card, but the Yukon board DID work with 2.6.16. Sorry I
can't be much more helpful than that.
