The "ne" module requires the "8390" module; if you use modprobe
instead of insmod, it should load this automatically.
Alternatively, try
 # insmod 8390 ; insmod ne
Best of all would be to ensure that the file /etc/modules
contains a line with just
which should ensure that the module is automatically loaded at
boot (come to think of it, if you loaded it during the install
it should already be there; arfe you sure it isn't already loaded?
 # lsmod
to see a list of currently loaded modules).
