Problem solved, bmac was the module I was looking for. Gentoo here we come!!!

Ok... Im not at home at the moment so this post might lack some infomation. Anyway...

Ive just got myself a blue and white iMac G3 333Mhz running OS 9.2 and ive decided to switch it over to Gentoo. I can boot the minimal-ppc disk no worries but ifconfig says 'no such device' and running lspci doesn't show any NIC. The NIC is working fine from OS9.2, I just cant seem to find any info on it. Actaully if I look at the 'system profiler' (I think) from OS 9.2 it shows I have an Ethernet 100Mbps, full-duplex but thats about all it says.

Im not new to Gentoo, just Im an x86 man so go easy on me. I can maybe provide more info when I get home just wondering if anyone might know off the top of there head what module I need to load to get this NIC recognized.

What was the resolution? I'm having this problem myself and haven't googled up the answer just yet.

EDIT: Ah ha! For me, at least, the module I needed was bmac.
