Hi

I will first check what is the name of networkcard I need to istall so run command:
# lspci
than have a look to directory:
/lib/modules/<kernel>/
for appropriate driver then use modprobe to instal modul.
if the modul is installed you can check with
#lsmod

did you try eepro100 module?

# modprobe eepro100

to bring up your network card do:

# ifconfig eth0 up

#ifconfig eth0 should appears

then setup etho for example

# ifconfig 192.168.0.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 192.168.0.255

and you should by ok.
