[E3-hacking] Newbie networking problems

Hi Folks,

I've just received my first E3 and I'm cramming up on the info trying to 
get going.

I've followed the info in the wiki about getting started and I get boot 
it up over the serial port now without a problem.

My next milestone is to get t nrtworking and this is where I'm coming 
adrift. I've got a USB-ethernet adapter that is based on the ADM8515 
chipset. When I plug it in I see...

usb 1-1: new full speed USB device using ohci and address 3
usb 1-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice

and that's all. I think that the driver for the Pegasus will work with 
this chipset (though I may be wrong).

dmesg gives me the following with regard to networking...

usbcore: registered new driver catc
drivers/usb/net/catc.c: v2.8 CATC EL1210A NetMate USB Ethernet driver
usbcore: registered new driver kaweth
pegasus: v0.6.13 (2005/11/13), Pegasus/Pegasus II USB Ethernet driver
usbcore: registered new driver pegasus
drivers/usb/net/rtl8150.c: rtl8150 based usb-ethernet driver v0.6.2 
usbcore: registered new driver rtl8150

So that's as far as I've got. I can't see /dev/eth0, which I would 
expect. ifconfig just shows my loopback device (should it show more?)

Please folks, what do I need to do next to get in on the network?
