Okay, module vs. built in; I'm having a similar problem to what was decribed above:

'ifconfig eth0 up' yieds an 'unknown device' error, but 'dhcpcd' doesn't give any errors, nor does 'dhcpcd eth0'. Is there any solution other than recompiling my kernel (not that it's a tragedy, I'm just trying to get this to work for the first time, but I'd like to troubleshoot rather than reformat and start over)
Please start a new topic so we don't hijack this thread.

In it post your problem as well as the output of 'lspci' and 'lsmod'
