This is a sign that the CONFIG_LASI_82596 driver didn't get loaded.
Can you run "modprobe lasi_82596" and see if that finds eth0 for you?

If it does, add "lasi_82596" to /etc/modules and life should be good.

Right - this is the kernel discovering the device - not the kernel driver
getting loaded to actually talk to that device.

Anyone know if the Debian-hppa 2.6 kernel depends on hotplug RC scripts
to load drivers for misc devices?

If so, then we would need a "parisc" hotplug script to load the
devices related to parisc devices like LASI apricot or HSC SCSI.
