Well, as I think I said, the interface comes up, and the light on my switch
for that connection comes up as well.  So it looks like it should work.  I
do need to double check the interface configuration, but I did plug in the
numbers during the install.  I even did a cat /proc/interrupts and I see the
transceiver there.  Anyway, I know when I get to compiling the kernel, I'll
have the network modules to load, so I wasn't sure if there was one in
particular I should choose.
