  this can be fixed, you should be able to save files on floppy disk or
on your other partitions depending on how things are setup.  

  if you have a floppy disk, try typing "mcopy file_name a:" when you
want to move things off the machine.  this will copy files onto MSDOS
formated disks (you can make one with "mformat a:").

  Hrmm... you said that you had something called 
"/lib/modules/2.4.20-debian2" up above, and that the find returned
nothing... this should not be.  Please double check... 

find /lib/modules/2.4.20-debian2

should print *something*... at the very list one line.

- Run the following:
  ls -l /usr/src/linux*/debian*

- If there is a file named "debian2" try using mcopy to safe that to a
  floppy disk, and email that to *me* (not to the list).

  Sorry it will take several more rounds to fix this... I'm trying to
gather information about the state of your system *before* changing

  What I know is that the kernel you are using does not have the 
EEPRO100 driver compiled in, and the modules directory which should
contain the run-time loadable drivers appears to have been damaged 
or never correctly installed.

  I would like to see if you have a config file for the kernel you are
running around, and if so get a copy so I can look it over and build a
kernel and modules package for your machine based on it.
