where is eth0


I know this is a newbie question and I have read many posts about this problem. However, I did a net install of Debian and the install went fine. When I got everything setup I found that I could not find eth0 present. I am using a SMC 1255TX pci network card. ifconfig -a shows only the loobback interface. I've tried everything that I know including changes to the modules.conf file. I don't understand why the install procedure connected without any problems and now the connection has dissappeared. Please help!! Massive frustration is setting in!!

Try
ifconfig -a;
This will show all network interfaces include interfaces that are down.
also post the output from
lsmod;
lspci -v

I don' think tulip has any dependencies. Try to insert int
insmod tulip.

Try to build the module dependancies
depmod;

I am confussed. You still should be able to insmod tupil. I am going to have to sleep on this modep problem. Try insterting the module and see if you can bring the nic up.
insmod tupil;
/etc/init.d/network start;
I am not 100% about how debian startup scripts start the network, but I think the above is it.
Sorry I have to go now. I will get back with you tomorrow. We'll get this thing worked out.
Good luck
