Well, I got it working, but switching to the other console and doing
modprobe 3c509
didn't get a negative response but didn't get me the screen either. I was 
able to bring it up after the install and eventually I just recompiled the 
kernel with that built into the kernel; I know that might not have been 
the easiest way to do it but it worked. Once i did that my ethernet 
connection was started at boot. it might be nice if FC at least asked if 
you wanted to do a network and maybe gave you a list of cards/modules. But 
it wasn't really a huge problem once I figured out what I wanted to do 
about it.
Actually, isapnp does find my card.
