Somehow, the driver isn't loaded, either because you didn't compile the right 
one into the kernel, or because you didn't load the relevant module.

The output of `cat /proc/pci` should tell you what kind of chip is in there 
(linux kernel drivers are always much more interested in actual chips used 
than in brand names), or otherwise the documentation that goes with the 
kernel might contain a reference to Genius cards.

It shouldn't be very difficult at all to find the right driver.

I dare venture it might be a realtek 8139 based card.
