Yes, I think I did:

Yes, I think it has:

there is no error.

Yes, it can: /sbin/modprobe

hmmm, strange...did you mean /etc/modules.conf
I have neither modprobe.conf nor modules.conf which is
mentioned in a few forums I found through google, but
creating a modules.conf with
alias eth0 sis900
doesn't solve the problem.

is there anything I have to do which is not mentioned
in the LFS-5.1.1 book ?
