It's been my experience that whenever a device shows
up as "Unknown", my best solution has been to upgrade my kernel.

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.
Can you "ping localhost"?
Can you ping your gateway, by address? by name?

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

Argh; I hate winmodems. It's possible that you can find a working driver here: http://www.physcip.uni-stuttgart.de/heby/ltmodem/

But the only binary driver I found for Debian for 2.6 is for 2.6.8, so you might still have some issues.
