    Try to "modprobe 3c2000" as root.

    Good luck

    Thanks but that didn't work.

    I have the drivers, but they are written for the 2.4 kernel. Is there anyway to recompile the drivers to work on the 2.6.7 kernel?

    That depends on how many errors you get when you try to compile. If you're really lucky, it might be possible to port it manually to 2.6 (I did that once with the driver I used for my BCM4401 onboard LAN card, until the vanilla kernels got a driver of their own).
