if you cannot boot a modular kernel (intel provides the module, but not a
kernel patch) go to redhat or suse and get their kernel sources, this is
what i did for my net install. redhat however has for the e1000 more than
just the e1k patch, you have to figure out what patches else you need. suse
has just one patch, the name was 50_intel-e100-e1000-2.4.13-pre6 . let me
know if you need that one, i'll sent it to you then.
