[ATrpms-users] FC3 mobo upgrade

I may be posting this in the wrong place but I need some help with my
FC3 MythTV system. I'm using atrpms, last time I ran an update was
maybe a week or two ago.
Last night I replaced the motherboard. Went from what I think was a
standard nforce2 with mcp-t southbridge, to an nforce2 u400 (old mobo
crashed a lot). Having done an even bigger leap on my debian firewall
last year, I figured it would be fine. So far, it's behaving more
like windows does when you replace the mobo :)
First boot, hardware detection finds a bunch of stuff removed so I sat
there hitting "remove config" until it stopped, dropped back to
text-only mode and was apparently initialising swap space, but just
sat there. ctrl+alt+del appeared to do nothing but eventually
rebooted - looks like it wasn't updating the screen at all.
Second boot, I told it to keep what remained of the old configuration
and add the new stuff. It booted - but now doesn't detect the onboard
network card, and when I try to watch TV (using a v-stream xpert DVB-T
card) I get lots and lots of glitches (looks a bit like a lack of PCI
bandwidth so I'll be fiddling with some bios settings when I get home
tonight). Sound card and AGP video card work fine.
Is there an easy way to force a re-detection of the missing network
card? I'd prefer not to install the nvidia drivers. I'll be trying
knoppix tonight to make sure it's not a hardware issue, but was
hoping someone here had a few ideas I could try.
