local net problems
I have installed debian hamm (on an EIDE Pentium about a week ago).
Kernel 2.0.29 (since configured, compiled, and installed a 2.0.30
There are two weird problems that I am experiencing...
The first problem is that the ethernet module is not loading.
But typing "insmod /lib/modules/2.0.30/net/3c509.o" loads
the module without error.
An "ifconfig eth0 126.96.36.199 up" works without error.
"route add -net 188.8.131.52" correctly sets up the
After the above, ping, telnet, and rlogin all work
on the local network.
I recompiled the kernel yesterday. The 3c509
module still did not load (I also added the
"options addr=0x300 irq=10" line that exists
in the conf.modules file for the stable
release machine -- still no help).
I noticed that there is mention that kerneld might
not work if /usr is not mounted and that if this is
the case that a work around is to copy a librry to
/lib (which I did and created the link). I really
did not expect this "fix" to work as all other modules
seem to load ok.

The other problem is trying to figure out where route is
getting the first entry:
I have looked all over to try to find out where route
is getting this IP address.
Also, I looked about everywhere that I could think of yesterday
and last night for some sort of net configuration utility(ies) in
Debian. I am quite used to editing the files by hand as the SVR5
machines that I have administered had a pretty unreliable set of
admin scripts but I don't want to do that with debian if there are
