failed to bring eth0 up


I have a pc: AMD 2600+, 512 MB DDRAM

I've installed Gentoo Linux on it but the network won't work althoug it thit in previous installation. I didn't really did anything different in the installation except for trying to config the kernel to my needs with:

genkernel --config

but I didn't changed much there if not nothing.

when i start up now I get the following error:


*Bringing eth0 up
modprobe: modprobe: can't locate module

*Failed to bring eth0 up
ERROR: problem starting needed services
"netmount" was not started


I don't want to reinstall just for this single problem.

I hope you can help me. Thanks anyway for just reading this.
