 its been a while since I've used an ISA ne2k board, but it looks like
the 8390 module isn't loaded.  I think the 'ne' module brings this in
automatically because 8390.o is a dependancy, meaning that 8390.o
provides these functions, and ne.o is expecting to use them.

 Did you compile this kernel yourself, or are you still using the
default kernel from the debian installation?

 does the 'lsmod' command show the '8390' module as being present, or
perhaps another 'ne' module already loaded?

 if yoy enter 'modinfo -p /lib/modules/2.2.12/net/ne.o' you will see a
list of supported options.  the only allowed options are 'io' and 'irq'.
