Try the instructions on the following page
to see if you can compile and insmod tulip.o
Once you test and it works you can install the new tulip.o
If it does not work (I had problems with Red Hat Distribution),
Try running the following. 
Donald suggested it to me and it worked great for me.

mkdir /tmp/netdrivers 
cd /tmp/netdrivers 
ncftpget ftp://www.scyld.com/pub/network/netdrivers.tgz 
tar xfv netdrivers.tgz 
make install # This must be done as 'root' 

I used this procedure on many machines and it worked fine.
