I've got a problem with my network. I can't get the card running, though it 
worked perfectly before. Below what happens and the errors I get:
-----------------------------------
odysseus:/# ifconfig

// No active devices found.

odysseus:/# ifconfig -a

// It finds eth0 and the loopback, they aren't active.

odysseus:/# ifdown eth0
ifdown: interface eth0 not configured

// Just what should happen...

odysseus:/# ifup eth0

odysseus:/# ifup lo

odysseus:/#

// This is where I loose the track. These seem to be kernel-messages, but I
can't find them in the kernel-source (looked in the kernel-subdirectory and
the net-subdirectory).
There are some other SIOC*-texts, but no SIOCSIFADDR or SIOCIFNETMASK in
those dirs.
The problem appeared after booting, everything worked perfect before.
Nothing has changed that could affect network or ethernet-card, afaik.
It's not hardware-related: the card still works in Win98SE and after placing
another card (same type), the problem still persists.
I did a kernel-recompile, but that hasn't solved it. Still the same error.
I'm running 2.4.0-prerelease.
The card is a PCI-card. It has a Winbond W89C940F-chip on it and the kernel
uses NE2k-drivers, I think.
I did a fsck on my HD, which didn't solve it either.
The light on the card blinks all the time, like there's something wrong. I
haven't looked whether it does so in Windows too.
Ifup / Ifdown version: 0.6.4-3
No messages in /var/log[syslog|messages|kern.log|ksymoops/*] about this.

Anyone who can tell me what's going on here?
