Did this work before?

One thing which won't work is loading original Linux kernel modules
into L4Linux.  From Linux' perspective, L4Linux is a different
architecture, and modules have to be recompiled for L4Linux.  

Did you try loading the NE2000 driver as an original Linux kernel
module?  In this case, I recommend you compile the driver into your
L4Linux kernel (or as an L4Linux module).


PS: Next week I'll be on vacation, and I won't answer my email.  I'll
    try to catch up afterwards, so please keep sending in bug reports.
    They're appreciated a lot!
