New kernel wont locate the eth0 module
I have a SuSE 7.0 with 2.2.16 kernel.
I compiled and installed a new kernel for it (2.4.14). While booting up, I see the message
"modprobe: can't locate module eth0".
While building the kernel, I believe I have taken enough precautions to enable the network support. While in xconfig,
In the 'Network device support'
Set the 'Network device support to 'y'.
set the 'dummy net driver support to 'y'
set the 'ethernet (10 or 100 mbit) to 'y'
set y to 'hp 10/100VG pclan (ISA, EISA, PCI) support'
(I have an HP EN1207D-TX PCI 10/100 Fast Ethernet Adapter).
Inspite of this, the kernel still says it can't module eth0 while booting.
Can someone help me solve this problem, please?
I also saw in xconfig, a way to save your configuration file or to use someother configuration file. I want to know if I can use such a file generated with I installed OS for the first time. If yes, which is that file? Is it /etc/modules.conf?
