The 2.4.20 kernel builds the network drivers as modules. You need to
know what ethernet card you have and then you need to insert the
module name in the /etc/module file to make sure the card is started
up when you boot into 2.4.20.

    fsshl> how should I modify this situation so it can connect

Find out what card you have. A good command to look up what you have
(if you have a PCI card) is 'lspci'. Also, you can try the following
command using your old 2.2 kernel (the output is from my system, you
will probably see different things):

~$ dmesg | grep eth
eth0: VIA VT6102 Rhine-II at 0xe400, 00:50:2c:03:26:a8, IRQ 11.
eth0: MII PHY found at address 1, status 0x782d advertising 01e1 Link 45e1.
eth0: Setting full-duplex based on MII #1 link partner capability of 45e1.

which tells me I have a VIA Rhine card. Now figure out what is the
driver for the VIA Rhine (hint: http://google.com :-). In this case it
is called via-rhine. So I would then boot into my 2.4.20 kernel, type
'modprobe via-rhine' and look in the dmesg output to see if my card
came up. If it does, I'd see similar output to what I have quoted
above in the end of the dmesg output. Then I would say 'ifup eth0' to
bring up the network interface and test things (you might have to
'ifdown eth0' before the 'ifup' works). If it all worked, I would add
'via-rhine' to the /etc/modules file so this was automatic on my next

    fsshl> if I used old kernel image 2.2.18, my netwrok is fine

Maybe you should stick to your old 2.2.18 kernel? It is a good kernel,
and unless there is something specific you need in 2.4.20 there is no
real reason to use it!
