The driver depends on other modules to be loaded first. Insmod does not
do that for you. Modprobe does:
echo rtl8239 >> /etc/modules
(to load it at boot time)
Maybe you also want to switch to another Kernel, you still are using
the one used for the installation. Debian also comes with a variety of
other 2.2.20 and 2.4.18 kernels. Use apt-cache to find them, and
apt-get to install one, if you want. Make sure security.debian.org is
in your sources.list:
apt-get install kernel-image-2.4.18-1-686
apt-get install kernel-image-2.4.18-1-k7
or whatever your architecture is. The old kernel will not be removed.
The 2.4.18 kernels need to use an initrd to boot, make sure to
configure lilo properly.
