Slackware network question

Slackware has a script called netconfig (I'm pretty sure) that is used
to configure your network settings.  It also can optionally probe for
a network card if you want.  I think once on one of my machines, it
picked the wrong card however.  I had to go in and manually correct.
If I can recall, I think it tried to call my 3com 3c509C with a ne2000
driver.  I guess hardware auto detection schemes aren't 100% right all
the time.  I have seen it work on other systems though.
