Two ways to do this: either add 'fealnx' on a line by itself in
/etc/modules, which has a list of modules that get loaded at boot
time.  Or, add 'alias eth0 fealnx' in a file in /etc/modutils (maybe
create a file there named with your hostname) and run update-modules
as root; this causes the driver to get loaded when you try to bring up
the et0 network interface.

You need to edit /etc/network/interfaces; read interfaces(5) for
details, or see /usr/share/doc/ifupdown.  Having set up that file
correctly, 'ifup eth0' will bring up and configure the interface,
'ifdown eth0' will take it down.
