So I'm trying an install in a new Lenovo Thinkpad T61, and the ethernet card is a "Intel Corporation 82566MM Gigabit Network Connection (rev 03)". At first eth0 wasn't there so I modprobed a bunch of stuff until it appeared, but I still do not appear to be using the correct module because the activity lights don't blink and I just get a timeout on "Running dhcpcd". I've gone pretty braindead, any ideas what I should be doing?

Well, 'modprobe -l e1000*' returns nothing. There is not even a 'net' subdirectory in /lib/modules/2.6.24-gentoo-r5/kernel/drivers.


dmesg returns nothing with the word 'ethernet' in it.
