I had a similar problem a few days ago, I think... I had used dselect to
upgrade from 1.1 to 1.2. After working through some problems due to
pre-depends and rebooting, I had the updated kernal and all, but could no
longer use the ethernet card, or the cdrom (cdu33a - ugh). The ethernet
was the easy fix. In my case, I have a 3com 3c509 card. What I needed to
do was run modconf (I think that's it, I can't check right now since my
Debian machine is dead until I get a new power supply) and install the
module for the 3c509 card. After that the network card worked fine (until
my power supply croaked...) The cdrom was a little trickier, and in the
end I re-made the kernal so that I didn't have all those other cdrom's
being probed during bootup.
Hopefully your situation is similar enough that this helps.
