my lspci -v result related to intel onboard LAN(assume is eepro)

I tried put a line in /etc/modutils/actions
insmod eepro autodetect=1 IO=d880 IRQ=11
reboot , still not work
(may be sytax is wrong, have any opinion? do see man page have its
syntax on the option feature)

some say newest kernel 2.5.50 can solve all above hardware(intel board
on board LAN and audio ) problem, so I download full tar.gz, choose what
my hardware fit
make install

error happen, I justify one of it, first one, in
containing sis_apic_bug not include its .h file

then re do make install
still error, this time I have no clue
