Default Re: Debian and post compiltion of the 1.0-0310 driver

Are the built-in network controller enabled in your system BIOS? Sometimes it can default to off.
modprobe -v nvnet to load kernel module or use modprobe -v forcedeth to load the opensource driver that comes with the 2.6 kernel.

To get the network connection up and running you probably want to use DHCP, install a dhcp-client(apt-get install dhcp-client) and make sure that /etc/network/interfaces reads something like:
# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The primary network interface
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp
