hi TaaDow, welcome to lq. w/that said, have you tried to modprobe the tulip driver, i believe (i could be wrong) that this diver is part of the kernel, not the distro. in any event, post the output of the following commands here
all issued as root or su
the output from these should shed some light on the actual chipset your working with, and, the drivere that needs to be loaded.
