I upgraded to 2.4.18-686 and that got the module to
load.  Unfortunately, that did not get my LAN working,
so the NIC was probably NOT the problem.

I have a temporary workaround, if anyone can help me
with it.  I have a Lucent Winmodem installed in my
desktop machine (not the one with the new NIC).  If I
can get it working, I can at least use my normal
desktop machine for e-mail and connection to the Net
while I try to work out the LAN problems.  The
pertinent section of lspci on that box is:

0000:00:0b.0 Communication controller: Lucent

I am running a stock Debian 2.6.7-1-k7 kernel on that
box.  Can anyone help me get the LT Modem working?
