Well, I already solved my own problem. Unfortunately the thing that I'm now ranting about is that I get no friggen' help on Linux! Not from you people, but from my co-workers n' friends. I just wish someone would take the 5 seconds to let me know the ismod xxxx comand was essentially the key to binding the driver to eth0. Err, yeah.
The book I bought recently doesn't highlight this either. Talk about frustrating.
I'm going back to Windows!
Yeah, anyways, I suck at Linux.
