I'm trying to bring new life to some old powermac 4400/200 here in the

"cat /proc/pci" outputs:
Bus 0, device 14, function 0:
Ethernet controller: Realtek 8029 (rev 0).
Medium devsel. IRQ 24.
I/O at 0x400 [0x401].
So I have searched the web for the correct driver and found ne2k-pci,
then I have recompiled the kernel (2.2.18pre21) with the following
but the card is still not recognized.
Nice job finding the right driver. :-)
Not 100% certain, but I think kernel-image-2.2.19-pmac (not sure it's in
stable) has it as a module. (I have the 8029 NIC too.) So if it's not
in stable, just use lynx or something to get the .deb and dpkg to
install, then use modconf to add ne2k-pci to the auto-installed-at-boot
