I just noticed that on my system Mandrake 8.1, with the following ethernet card
(reported by lspci):

02:09.0 Ethernet controller: 3Com Corporation 3c905C-TX [Fast Etherlink] (rev 78)

running dmesg | grep eth doesn't list any results, despite the fact that I (at this moment) am 
using that ethernet card from Linux, successfully, to post this response. What does it mean 
that my card doesn't show up but that it still works?
