You need to compile support for your ethernet card into your kernel. 
Install pciutils then run /usr/sbin/lspci, it will give you some info 
about what hardware you have installed. Recompile your kernel and when 
you do make menuconfig, look at Device Drivers  ---> Network device 
support  ---> Ethernet (there are three different sub menus) for a 
device which matches what lspci told you. If nothing matches, ask Google.
