Potato vs Realtek8029PCI NIC

Trying to build a tiny lan here...
Recompile fresh 2.2.16 with the ne2k-pci driver as module.
No signs of nic when booting, insmod ne2k-pci.o gives me "unresolved
symbols"-error, and ifconfig -yadayada gives me error to the effect
that there's no hardware to configure.

So the question is: to nic or not to nic?

I've determined that the kmod-bit works (all the other modules are
inserted automagically on request), and little lights are shining
from nic and hub.

Is there any other voodoo I have to do to get the card recognised/
installed/ configured/ whatever?
It said in a howto somewhere (I forget which, I've pored over so
many of'em lately;-), that the Realtek RTL8029 is a NE2000-clone,
and so should use the driver for same... Right?!
