You are loading the module for the ne2000 after the system has booted havent
you?  I don't think we 'auto-detect' anything anymore so as to save space on
the installation floppies.  If you load the ne2000 module from the menu what
happens?  My SMC Elite 16C Ultra card doesnt get detected at bootup when I
installed Debian 1.1.6 to test the distribution - I loaded the module and it
found it fine.

Hope that helps.
