Ergo, your problem is that the forcedeth module (if inserted) is
not picking up your nic. Is it the right module? Will any module
in /lib/modules/<kernel-version>/kernel/drivers/net pick it up.
The other thing is grok the source. If you don't have C, you still
probably can read the comments (If and were made). Let me pass on
a little experience.
cat <sourcefile> |grep -c FIXME
If there are many of those, it's WIP and they were only joking.
BTW, just humour me and run ldconfig and depmod - both to be run
in all dangers, temptations and afflictions. At least that's what
the big men in black drummed into me when I was a kid :).
Have you an old ne2k or the like you can throw in to a slot, or do
you want/need to suffer?
