You might want to install discover (apt-get install discover). It does
hardware detection for you and would probably recognize your ethernet
hardware. Or you can as root, do modconf and search for
the /kernel/drivers/net. Once in there, you should hopefully see the 8139too
module. You can then install the module. Once installed via modconf,
everything is set up so that future reboots will load up the 8139too module
