No, you didn't. =-}

If you compiled the NIC support as a module, you need to load
the module before the hardware is known to the kernel. If you
didn't compile the NIC support either as a module or in to the
kernel, then you should go back to the kernel configuration
(make [x|menu]config) and set up support for the card as a
module, then do:

Code:
make dep && make modules && make modules_install
