IIRC the lastest m68k kernel debian ships is 2.2.20, you are talking about
Debian 2.2.23 or are you using a different kernel? Did you try the current
Debian, ie 3.0?

When the install sees your NIC, it probably loaded a module for the NIC, has
this module been added to /etc/modules so it is automatically loaded during
boot? Try lsmod in the installation and in your installed system. Try to
load it manually (modprobe), then add it to /etc/modules (or build your own
customized kernel).
