Was your card not supported by the eepro100 module in 2.4.18? The config
file for the 2.4.18-bf2.4 kernel says it already hat that driver
compiled as a module.

Either add a line
to /etc/modules, manually or by using modconf, or add a line
alias eth0 eepro100
to /etc/modutils/aliases or your own file in /etc/modutils and run
update-modules to save the change to /etc/modules.conf.
