Why the 21040? You need tulip. In RH6.1 there is a tulip option
for the kernel module. You can try loading the module manualy
to see if it is detected. Use 'modprobe tulip'
you should see meessages from the driver in dmesg and it detects
the card and the MII tranciever.

Check the Mandrake documentation, or the Mandrake support options
