Well, no, it doesn't.  That's why I thought that diagnosing with Knoppix would
be just the same.  If the card worked, say, with a newer kernel, then it would
be easy to solve the problem and save the card with a simple upgrade to Debian

Thanks for your help.

I'm attaching the file ethernet-enquiry.tar.gz, that you can unpack with `tar
xzvf ethernet-enquiry.tar.gz'.  It's only 12Kb.  There are all those outputs:

ifconfig -a
uname -a
modprobe sis990
lspci -nnk

for the two different systems Debian Etch and Debian Lenny on the same machine
from two different partitions.

I wish the card could work again, or else I shall buy an usb-ethernet adaptor
and hope it will be all right.  It is necessary for me sharing files via
ethernet from one machine to another.
