the eth1 "device" is created automatically once the driver is
succesfully loaded. ISA NICs sometimes require options to be passed
to the driver, like modprobe ne irq=6,io=0x1234 etc. it's been a few
years since i've had the displeasure of playing with an ISA nic ..

if libranet is still installed you can probably get the config it uses
and copy it over to debian, I would check /etc/lilo.conf and /etc/modules*
and/or grep /etc for the module that your using
