where can you get linux drivers for net cards

I am trying to create boot disks to use to image our workstations.   The
problem is at least two of the net card drivers aren't included on the boot
disks that zen4 makes.   Example one of them is SMC EZ card 10/100 PCI
SMC1211TX.   Can anyone tell how get  the linux driver for this card?   Also
the message I get is to check the documentation to see what cards are
included.  What documentation are they talking about?

FYI - This  should be under novell.support.zenworks.imaging
no blood no foul though. ;) 

the "why" of this is simple: there are lots of nics.. and many new ones since Zen's release. They can't possibly have all of them in there.. fortunately it is not bad to add new ones. 

See TID 10070811  which goes into adding drivers to either the PXE files or the boot disks. 
Adding them to a boot disk is cake (an option while making disk 3) 

There is also a coolsolutions site with lots of pre-compiled drivers for newer nics out there.
(as seen in Marcus Breiden's signature..) 
If you are searching for drivers or have already compiled one take
a look at http://forge.novell.com/modules/xfmod/project/?zfdimgdrv 

Hope that helps!

Dave,

this question should be answered in the imaging forum - please ask 
there.
