check messages in /var/log/boot.msg
Do you use modules? then check if the appropriate module was loaded with: lsmod

sounds like you're missing the NIC driver in the kernel.
I recommend to compile it into the kernel, and not load it as module.

This is dangereous, it might or might not work.
At least you have to load these modules with the -f option (which is not done in the init scripts).
