Public bug reported:

On an ASUS A7N8X-E DELUXE motherboard, the Marvell Yukon chipset doesn't work.
Well when I say doesn't work, I do managed to make it work once, at the first
network configuration, with skge module but after reboot it didn't worked
anymore and I couldn't make it work manually. When trying to load manually the
sk98lin module (provided by the official Ubuntu 2.6.12-9-k7 kernel or compiled
with SysKonnect driver), eth1 simply disappear from list in Gnome Network
Administration tool. Trying to load/unload manually skge module doesn't work
neither, as well as desactivating "auto eth1" in /etc/network/interfaces before
reboot. 

It seems that many people have problem with this chipset, not especially with
Ubuntu. People on forums are talking about hotplug and IRQ conflicts, but there
is real answer to the problem ... To mention that Marvell Yukon works fine under
Mandriva LE 2005, with older 2.6 kernel and sk98lin module.

Copy/paste of lshw and ifconfig below.
