2.6.13 not finding network card 2.4 did

I've just tried upgrading to 2.6.13, latest Slack download, but Slack now doesn't recognise my NIC. On 2.4 I used to add /sbin/modprobe e100 to rc.modules and that sorted it out, but with the new kernel it hasn't. This is the first time I've upgraded a kernel, so I might have screwed up, but does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

lspci sees the card 'Intel Corporation 82801EB/ER (ICH5/ICH5R)'

but lsmod says it's not being used

I'm assuming you upgraded using Slackware packages for that kernel, did you also installed the kernel-modules package for it?
