e1000 cannot bring up intel pro/1000 MT interface


i have a dell precision 360 with an Intel® PRO/1000 MT Gigabit6 Ethernet LOM. i learned that e1000 is the driver and got it by compiling kernel 2.4.22. i inserted aprop entries in /etc/network/interfaces and in modutils/ and updated modules.conf. when i try to bring up the interface, this message appears on the console

e1000: eth0 NIC Link is up 100Mbps full duplex

without any obvious error message. but when i check ifconfig, i get all the lines in a standard interface display except the line with the IP address and mask. route is empty and trying to directly use dhclient or pump gives similar results. mii-tool gives a SIGG..something error. what should i do?

is the driver correct?
