It is being loaded as a module already. I should've said specifically that
this is a stock install of RedHat 6.2, using the EEPro100 driver module from

I had considered that, and have heard that they had RPMs of their drivers
for kernel version 2.2.14 (wonder why only that?), which is what RH 6.2
runs. However, I visited the site and only saw the source tarball. Not a lot
of use to me, I'm afraid, due to reasons below.

That could be a good idea. If I could find a spare machine and set it up
with the same network card and kernel I can compile a newer revision of the
EEPro100 module (or Intel's driver) and copy it over. If only I *did* have a
spare machine... :(
