Hah, going further in the install, when it makes me to choose a kernel I'm 
pretty much back to my original choice between 2.6.8-11 kernels.  And then 
after reboot , same "device not found "!

But now I saw that Aaron's iso file/installer actually runs 2.6.8-10 !!!
That's the trick - so I copied the drivers from /lib/modules onto some other 
partition and then when I'm in the 2.6.8-11 system (without NIC) I then do a
 insmod sk98lin.ko

Now that works fine!

Thanks everybody ! And, Aaron, keep that iso file around !! (Or actually just 
the sk98lin.ko would do (223k in size))
