if it isn't in dmesg, ifconfig won't be showing it, either.

The card isn't showing up.
Possible reasons:
1) The card is not properly plugged into the bus.  Likely.
2) The card is a PCI2.2-only and your system is a PCI2.1-only (unlikely on
both counts, never seen a picky Intel EtherExpress card, and your
machine is pretty "new").
3) The card is hiding behind an unsupported PCI bridge (I don't see
the unsupported bridge in the dmesg, though I know I couldn't find it
once before, and haven't gone back to that machine to look at what I
missed).  Not overly likely.
4) your NIC is completely dead
5) Your PCI slot is very dead (try a different slot)

Options 1, 5 and 4 are most likely, roughly in that order.  I'm betting
on #1, that's the usual problem with PCI cards.
