NIC not detected when upgrading kernel


I have just upgraded my kernel from 2.2 to 2.6 and my network card is not detected by lspci or at boot on dmesg, ifconfig -a does not show eth0

the network card works fine in 2.2

I have a Intel Pro 100 which i selected in config

So it looks like my kernel is not detecting the card, in dmesg it has a note about PCI devices are now not automatically detected as using acpi could this be the problem? Am currently at work so don't have access to my machine and i was thinking to recompile without acpi support, anyone think this might work? Or have any other suggestions for fixing this

Hardware:
Dual 1ghz PIII (detected both fine)
NIC Intel 82559 PRO 100
Distro Debian-Sarge
Kernel 2.6.11.3 (NIC works fine on 2.2)

modprobe: QM_MODULES: Function not implemented
modprobe: QM_MODULES: Function not implemented
modprobe: Can't locate module 100

...

I recompiled kernel without acpi support and now my card is detected on boot, and shows up on dmesg and lspci

however it is not automatically assigned an ip and i can't use it at all unless i enter:
ifconfig eth0 10.1.1.5 netmask 255.255.255.0 up

when i do this i can at least detect my local network, however can't access internet through my router

I have no idea where i should be looking to set this up correctly, I am thinking it has something to do with dhcp server?

any ideas?
