An apology to all: I think I mixed up, but this info was crusial to solving 
the problem as I have a 10MB/s net: After seeing that there is no alias eth0 
in debian modules.conf file setup, I less'ed my /proc/pci telling me that:
  Bus  0, device  17, function  0:
    Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8029(AS) (rev 0).

A quick modconf for ne2k-pci actually loaded and inserted the nescessary 
module in /etc/modules. Now I have a happy new kernel with net support again.
