Thanks, that works perfectly
I post this in another thread, but thought that it is relevant to what we're discussing.
During the kernel customisation (make xconfig), I have Kernel Module Loader installed, which should load modules automatically as and when they are needed. I have a NIC that requires pcnet32.o to work and this driver is compiled as a module to the kernel. However, on bootup, this required module is not automatically loaded.
Although it does work after I manually added the module to /etc/modules, I'm curious as to why it wasn't automatically loaded by the Kernel Module Loader during bootup.
Thanks again !

try: "modprobe <nicmodule>"
then: "ifconfig -a"
if eth0 pops up, run: "/etc/init.d/networking restart"
"echo <nicmodule> >> /etc/modules" to load module on boot.
