That's a pretty new ethernet chipset, (at least newer than Linux 2.2) so
i doubt there is a driver in GNUMach for it. You can attempt to backport
one of the drivers from Linux 2.4 or 2.6, if you can do that, it
shouldn't be TOO hard though. When dealing with GNUMach remember this:

* use the gnumach-1-branch from CVS
* use autoconf 2.13 (not the latest one)

The Linux ethernet drivers are usually in
/gnumach/linux/src/drivers/net. Along with some other things you'll have
to edit that are scattered around, I'm not very familiar with how
GNUMach builds.

Good Luck
