Ok here It is 

pci0: <unknown card> (vendor=0x1039, dev=0x7012) at 2.7 irq 10
sis0: <SiS 900 10/100BaseTX> at device 3.0 on pci0
sis0: couldn't map ports/memory
device_probe_and_attach: sis0 attach returned 6
pcib1: <SiS 5591 host to AGP bridge> on motherboard
pci2: <PCI bus> on pcib1
orm0: <Option ROM> at iomem 0xc0000-0xcbfff on isa0
fdc0: <NEC 72065B or clone> at port 0x3f0-0x3f5,0x3f7 irq 6 drq 2 on
isa0

I also just saw this 

ppbus0: <Canon BJC-4300/1.00> PRINTER BJ,LQ,BJL,BJRaster,BSCC

That is my printer. But I havent switched it on for days now. Does that
mean it detected it ?

OK, can I see the relevant output from dmesg?
