I didn't have to do anything extra, just add the aliases (you see a
bit of my network history there as well:-)
jojda:/home/erik# cat /etc/modutils/erik.eth
# erik: this is a local file to take care of
# modules for network card (from linksys webpage)
# not using tulip anymore (linksys LNE100TX)
# alias eth0 tulip
# rtl8139 driver from scyld, for d-link
# alias eth0 rtl8139
# rtl8139 driver from kernel (two cards)
alias eth0 8139too
alias eth1 8139too
# force 10 Mbs half duplex
# options tulip options=9
