Hi Again, Mr/Ms Blux.

 If you have your ethernet driver as a module (which is a good idea,
IMHO) you need to tell the kernel which module to load - add something
like

alias eth0 tulip

to /etc/modules.conf (if your chip uses the tulip driver).

 And please, don't attach one-or two line text if it's at all possible
for you to include it in the mail itself.  Attaching makes it a more
long-winded process to read.
