Google finds this as the first hit :
See where it says "Chipset: tulip"? That means it's a tulip card and
uses the tulip driver. Run 'modconf' and select the 'DEC Tulipchip'
(or whatever the exact wording is). Then try 'ifup eth0'. The device
will be named "eth0".
The "lo" device is the loopback device. It is how you can ping
yourself. The "sit0" device has something to do with tunnels. You
don't really need it. I never had one until I started trying to play
with IPv6. I don't understand it yet, but that's what I know.
Failure is not an option. It is bundled with the software.
