Kernel Problem...

I just recently recompiled my 2.4.20 kernel (where the internet worked) to 2.6.6. Now the internet does not work. I've tried module-init-tools, enabling tulip on my kernel, making modules, making modules_install, then rebooting. Still no luck. However, before I installed module-init-tools lsmod gave me an error like the following:

root@vortex:~# lsmod
Module Size Used by Not tainted
lsmod: QM_MODULES: Function not implemented


Though, now it just does:

root@vortex:~# lsmod
Module Size Used by Not tainted


I have no idea what to do, and it's irritating me . Any help? Thanks in advance.

By the way, I'm running Slackware 9.0.

when it comes to kernel compiling, DaOne's guide is my bible. you can find a guide for 2.4 series here:

i know you aren't using the 2.4 series, but there are some steps in this guide that he refers to in the 2.6 guide, which is here:

try recompiling again, making sure to follow his steps, and things should be ok. if you've already done that, then i'd try posting the question in the slackware forum, here:

good luck!
