I've moved my [working] LFS 6.3 from real SATA to VMWARE (Server 1.0.4)
I added the BusLogic SCSI support in the kernel and it boots fine.

However, it can't find eth0.

lspci says: "Ethernet controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] 79c970
[PCnet32 LANCE] (rev 10)".

I've enabled all AMD<anything> I can find in the kernel, and no joy. Anyone
know how to see the VMWare virtualized NIC?

The LFS-Live CD sees it fine.

Enabling them in the kernel should have done it. Try installing the support
tools as they contain source for kernel modules for the PCNET and VLANCE
