The Mandriva 2006.0 kernel is stuck at while kernel.org (and
most probably Gentoo) is up to  This NIC is not even mentioned
on the Marvell site so I'm guessing it's fairly new.  Try the latest
Gentoo Live CD to see if it detects it and then note the kernel it uses
by looking at the output of:
      uname -a
