In /etc/modules.conf, look at eth0 alias and/or eth1 alias. It
should be the name of the driver you intend to use. You don't
have to reboot for tests, just put the right stuff in and
do your `ifconfig` stuff by hand.

Also, sometime, with your new kernel running, do `depmod -a` this
will update the dependencies.
