Did you select support for your card as a module "m"
or compile support directly into the kernel "*"

Look under /usr/src/linux/.config
Ethernet (10 or 100Mbit)
also look at lspci for your card
see if you have it selected and give me the info.
Is it "*" or "m"
also what does lspci say about your card.
Need more info ...

You won't find any eth? node in /dev. It is not a "conventional" device node as it is created loading the driver and assignements of the parameters are done by ifconfig (plus some features of the kernel).
Just make sure your eth card driver is loaded, configure your network by " netconfig" and check everything went fine by "ifconfig -a".
Ifconfig -a should report a valid IP address of your card if properly configured.
Ciao
