Yup. That's it. Sorry for wasting everyone's time trying to help me.
I kept going back to that lspci thing and thinking, "Why does that person want to see that file? I can't upload it, and it doesn't even have anything about a PCI card in it." Then I thought, wait a minute, it should probably say something like, "unknown pci device" or something like that.
Then I remembered that the low-profile bracket did not quite line up correctly with the card, so that it tended to make the card want to pop out of the slot. And that is what happened.
I had bought the card because there was a review on Newegg saying that it worked automatically with Linux Mint (and because it was on sale for $15 with free shipping), and I hereby confirm that it does.
Once the card was properly seated, Mint auto-loaded a driver and got it up and running.
Again, I apologize for waisting valuable guru time.
