Did you use your old config file as a basis for your new kernel? It looks to me as though your missing some features in your kernel.

i used config file from /boot/vmlinuz.config
i thing its orig 2.4.20 suse conf. file

What type of card is it? See if you have a corresponding module in /lib/modules/2.4.22/kernel/drivers/net

I don't know about the filesystem part, but I think I can help you out with your eth.

its 3com fast ethernet
by boot it says modprobe : did not found module fv-nt-14 or so

You'll want to know the exact model of the card, something like 3C509. If your not sure, do a "lspci" in a terminal (as root), this will give you a list of all pci devices.
Anyway, fv-nt-14 doesn't sound like a 3com module to me at all.

is it better to make parts of kerenel as a module or compile them directly inside with y

becouse i i did all 3com cards as a part of kernel not module

ok
is :01:07.0 Ethernet controller: 3Com Corporation 3c905B 100BaseTX [Cyclone] (rev 30)

Hmm, so you compiled all drivers as part of the kernel? It's not my way of doing things, but it's not a bad thing either. It should work.
What happens when you bring up the ethernet interface? Use something like "ifconfig eth0 <ip-adress> netmask <netmask> up"

ok recompiled and got other problem
it says by boot

by many things cant locate /lib/modules/modules.dep
no depencies

maybe this is the problem ?
