I Have a spare 7500, and the RJ45 jack and the other jack that I thought was firewire is evidently a network device since they have the same logo. I think that the RJ45 uses the MACE driver and I guess the AAUI woud use a different driver. It didn't automatically detect the eth cards. I'm kinda newbie when it comes to Macs. Anyway, problem solved. I had moved my PCI cards around to make the case close and found out that my Via USB card will not work properly when it is installed in the PCI slot beside the processor. Here is the lspci -v output for the Via card:

0000:00:0e.0 USB Controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT82xxxx UHCI USB 1.1 Controller (rev 04) (prog-if 00 [UHCI])
Subsystem: VIA Technologies, Inc. (Wrong ID) USB Controller
Flags: bus master, stepping, medium devsel, latency 32, IRQ 24
I/O ports at f2010040 [size=32]

The Mac has a Bandit PCI host bridge and a Grand Central I/O controller.

Here is the boot.msg stuff about the card:

Was there anything else that I needed to post about the posible bug where the USB Mouse, USB printer, or USB camera were not recognized?

Thanx for all the help.
