My ISP: Road Runner Central Florida (cable)
I had been able to connect with kernel 2.20 vanilla from woody, following
the instructions given in http://home.cfl.rr.com/aawtrey/ , the connection
After compiling and installing kernel 2.4.18, that dind't work any more.
Here is an excerpt of my dmesg:

# /usr/share/doc/ifupdown/examples for more information.
# modificado por mi a mano
auto lo eth1
iface lo inet loopback
iface eth1 inet dhcp
This I changed following instructions given in
http://qref.sourceforge.net/quick/ (which by the way is very good!)
