eth1 not present

Trying to solve a nic driver problem on RH linux with kernel 2.4.20-8.

Here is what I have tried and the result errors. Please ignore typos.

modeprobe tulip
/lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/drivers/net/tulip/tulip.o: unresolved symbol_netdev_watchdog_up_R19eface2 etc....

localhost ifup: tulip device eth1 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization.
localhost network: Bringing up interface eth1: failed

alias eth1 tulip

Doing a make modules the last few lines are:
make[2] [ieee1394_core.o] Error 1
make[2] : Leaving directory /usr/src/*/drivers/ieee1394
make[1] [_modsubdir-ieee1394] Error 2
make[1] Leaving Directory /usr/*/drivers
make: [_mod_drivers] Error 2

I seems that make it is looking in the place for the nic driver. Should I edit one of the Makefiles? Should I be looking somewhere else for the cause of not being able to install the nic driver? Any feedback would be much appreciated!

Thank you,

looks like the module didnt either get built or get built properly. You should first figure out why the make modules failed out, it shouldnt have had any problems where it was.
