hmmm, did you simply upgrade your packages to get to ver 2.0 or did you
boot off a rescue floppy and install 2.0 from scratch?

If you upgraded your packages, then I should ask if you installed a
kernel-image package. This would have replaced your kernel (where you
will find the drivers for your NIC). So if you could, please share some
info on the kernel you are using: was it upgraded, do you compile your
own, and such.
