2.4.20 kernel and RTL8139

 I'm having a problem getting my on-board NIC to work with the 2.4.20
kernel. I was using Debian with the old 2.2 kernel, under which the
network card worked fine. Then I upgraded to the 2.4.20 kernel, and
suddenly I'm unable to connect to the dhcp server. Using lilo to boot
the old kernel still works fine.
 Before you ask, yes I did include the 8139 card in menuconfig. When
I run ifconfig, eth0 appears in the list alongside lo (loopback device),
but it doesn't get an IP address like it did in 2.2. Pinging the network
card ( works, but that's lo I guess? Has anyone had similar
problems, and if so, how do you solve them?
