Default Network Card

How do I find out which network card driver I have to include in the kernel configuration so that my new self-compiled kernel supports my network card?

Have a look at your current kernel's configuration file (normally under /boot), especially at the network card section, and try to use the same configuration in your new kernel.

Or open your computer and have a look at your network card...

I use gentoo primarily, and there is a utility called 'lspci' that will tell you what cards you ahve in the box. Is this command available on your distro?

Yes what i always do is flip my laptop and check the sticker to see what components i have. If that doesnt work I always check my manufactors info... if all fails open up the case... my card is a broadcom universall 10/100x ethernet card
