What you will need to do is recompile and under the compile configuration you will seee the section about token ring support and the type of adapter you have. Only certain adapters are natively supported so check the Hardware-How-to and see if your adapter is listed - if not you will need custom drivers or a new adapter.

Rebuild the kernel with the new token ring support and then install it in your boot loader and reboot. this should enable the token ring adapter for you,

let me know how you go.
