Question How to install driver Ethernet card in Linux kernel 2.4.10

Hi everybody!
this is first time I take part in this forum. I wish I will become an active member of this forum.
Now, I have a problem. My computer use Linux 7.3 operating system with kernel 2.4.18. And then I installed additionally linux kernel 2.4.10 ( for another purpose). When I started my computer with Kernel 2.4.18, I installed driver for ethernet card successfully. But when I started my computer with linux kernel 2.4.10, I could not installed driver for ethernet card successfully. I tried with ethernet cards: 3 Com 3c 590, Sundance ST 201 Alta, RTL 8139 SMC EZ. In linux kernel 2.4.18 I installed drivers for theses ethernet cards successfull, but in linux kernel 2.4.10 I could not install successfully. If someone know this problem, please tell me errors i had and how to install driver for ethernet card successfully. I am looking forward to receive your _answers.

well there's no real reason that that should happen unless that module imply doesn't exist on your 2.4.10 tree. assuming you do know the name of the dirver you are using (run "lsmod" and take a guess at it if you're not sure what it's called...) then run "updatedb" and then "locate nameofthatmodule". i'm guessing you'll only get a result on the 2.4.18 branch.
