Unless you're using a very old kernel, support for forcedeth has been included for a long time.

i'am using the latest debian stable release etch. this is 2.6.18. I did the installation from the net based installation netinst.
so maybe i have to install some additional package?

I'm not familiar with debian, but you need to build support for it in your kernel (under device drivers -> networking -> 10/100Mb) either built in or as a module. You might have better luck asking on debian forums.

You should not have to do a thing. Forcedeth is built in to the default kernel. If your network is not working then something is probably wrong with your hardware.

Temm,

The driver you need is already in the stock Debian kernel, in unstable, testing and stable, you don't need to compile anything extra.
