Debian Problem after compiling kernel


I recently obtained and installed Debian 1.3.1 off the InfoMagic
CD.  It installs kernel 2.0.29.  I then downloaded and
compiled kernel ver 2.1.62 and 2.1.63 and upon booting
I get the following error:

SIOCADDRT: Invalid Arguement
SIOCADDRT: Invalid Arguement

After looking around for some time I determined, this
problem occurs when the bootup procedure is executing
the file /etc/init.d/network.

Basically, I believe its a problem related to the Ethernet card.
Its a generic 10baseT NE2000 card.  The card is recognized
fine on bootup and the module is compiled.  I see the
autoprobe coming back with the IRQ of the card.

Below is what my networks file looks like.  Can someone
help me target the problem?  When I boot with kernel 2.0.29
that was installed with Debian, things work just fine.  Am i
doing something wrong while compiling the kernel?

Thanks in advance,
