         The kernel source-tree have the network driver I need.
         When I make menuconfig, I select built-in option for my network
         I don't use a module driver for my network card. I use built-in
driver. I don't really think
         I need insmod and modprobe, because the drivers is built-in in the
         And it seemed that kernel can detect my card. 
$cat /proc/pci
Bus   0, device 14, function  0:
    Ethernet controller: VIA Technologies Unknown device (rev 66).
        Vendor id=1106. Device id=3065.
       Medium devsel.   IRQ 11.  Master Capable.  Latency=32.  Min Gnt=3.
Max Lat=8.
       I/O at 0x6100 [0x6101].
       Non-refectchable 32 bit memory at 0xe4000000 [0xe4000000].

      Is that possible this driver didn't  support built-in option. I can
use this driver when I 
      use it as a module. I will work fine. But when I compile it as a
built-in driver, I want 
      to know what should I do to make it work.  I tried to use
/etc/network/interfaces and 
      ifup and still didn't work. Please help me. Thanks.
