Network Adapter (Intel eepro10+ EISA) detection problems

I have an Intel EtherExpress Pro10+ EISA card and can get neither slackware nor RedHat5.0 to find it.  SolarisX86 finds it no problem (even with p&p enabled).  I read in the Ethernet-HOWTO that this card uses the PRO100B driver rather that the PRO10 driver, but it suggests that this is only a PCI driver.  The HOWTO says that the PRO10+ is suported, but is the EISA version supported?

I have tried NE2000 support in the kernel as well, but the card still isn't detected at boot up.  I tried starting an NFS install from my boot disks to see if it could find the network adaptor then, but it couldn't find it then either.
