You are correct, I am using linuxconf.

I now have question about builtin drivers and modules. Last night I setup
eth0 to use the tulip module (using linuxconf) and it had network access. My
question is if the mace driver is built in will the kernel use that over the
tulip module? I never have had nic drivers compiled into the kernel, I
always recompile for nic modules on my intel boxes.
