Here's what i got - the first one is my vmware network bridge.

$ for BUSID in $(/sbin/lspci | awk '{ IGNORECASE=1 } /net/ { print $1
> }'); do /sbin/lspci -s $BUSID -m; /sbin/lspci -s $BUSID -n; done
00:07.0 "Bridge" "nVidia Corporation" "MCP61 Ethernet" -ra2
"Elitegroup Computer Systems" "Unknown device 2609"
00:07.0 0680: 10de:03ef (rev a2)

The FAQ shows this:

pci	10DE:03EF	kmod-forcedeth

This is installed on my desktop (that has no wireless card), but I'll
check the laptop tomorrow.

Thanks - this and the guides on the CentOS page ought to cover it.
I'll come back if I don't get it working....
