I hope you can get a copy of Debian 2.2 soon; 2.1 (Slink) is ancient.
Add `3c59x' to the file /etc/modules, and the module for your card will
be inserted the next time you boot. Alternately, you could add `alias
eth0 3c59x' to /etc/modutils/local and run update-modules, which does
almost the same thing, except that it only loads the module when eht0 is
activated instead of at boot time.
