Here is the workaround if you have 3.2:phiphi,
Looks like the user contributed module b44.o is the issue affecting the rtl8139 netcard.
However, copying the prior b44.o from v3.1 does indeed fix this issue.
After you copy over the b44.o from a prior version of DSL you must then run
# depmod -a
So, in fact the steps necessary to correct this issue
First place your DSL v3.1 or prior CD into machine. Then perform the following...
# mkdir /mnt/test
# mount /mnt/auto/cdrom
# mount /mnt/auto/cdrom/KNOPPIX/KNOPPIX /mnt/test -o ro, loop=/dev/cloop60
#cp /mnt/test/lib/modules/2,4,26/kernel/drivers/net/b44.o /lib/modules/2.4.26/kernel/drivers/net/.
If you like you can cut and paste then run this script.
As it says there, you will need a copy of DSL pre-3.2Looking for a distro? Look here.
