You might find this link useful:

It runs you through downloading the driver, compiling and installing it, and configuring and testing the interface.

check whether you have any Ethernet configured.

# dmesg | grep eth
# dmesg | grep 8139

and see whether the kernel has detected your card. Finally,

# lsmod | grep 8139

will show whether the 8139 driver is loaded.
