List of supported NICs?

Thanks Daron,

I am running some of the network-demos on a Dell Dimension XPS R400 that has
a 3Com 3c905B-TX NIC ... but the demo code  keeps reporting a dec21140, and
no network connectivity.

For example I am getting:

dec21140: found device 'dc1', bus 0x00, dev 0x00, func 0x00
dec2114x: unit 1 base address 00000000.

How does RTEMS select the right NIC? Is it predefined at compile time?

and there are several in c/libchip/network:
	dec21140, i82586, "tulip" (2114x) clones, and others.
