I am not sure how I have all of these entries either. I deleted all 
of the natsemi and pci-scan entries.

It did and I used the /etc/network/interfaces file as it was w/ my 
2.4 kernel. I still have to load the ne2k-pci module, lsmod still 
shows the natsemi module, I still have to ipconfig eth0 and I have 
to add the route to the gateway. 

I have also done dpkg-reconfigure -plow hotplug and reconfigured 
to read all interfaces from my /etc/network/interfaces file.

I don't understand how natsemi continues to be loaded as shown by 
lsmod ... or if that is the crux of my problem.
