3c90x not supported?

We are trying to install Linux + XFS using the SGI pre-release installation
CD on a Dell Precision 420 system. It contains an integrated 3com 3c90x
ethernet adapter. For some reason, the adapter is not identified at all
during installation (installation does not ask for IP address, subnet mask,
etc.), and after installation, Linux does not recognize any eth0 device. We
tried adding the device through linuxconf, but after rebooting the system
declares, "Delaying eth0 configuration". The command `ifconfig eth0` returns
that the device could not be found. The card itself is enabled in the BIOS,
and was fully functional under RedHat 6.2. Has anyone else had problems
getting such a 3com network card to work with RedHat 7 + XFS, or have any
suggestions on how to do so?

Thank you,
