Did the (eth0) device get detected and configured by GNUMach?

We don't have dmesg. Do something along the lines of:
 $ cat /dev/klog > ~/klog
 ^C # Hit ^C after a few sec...
 $ cat ~/klog # Read and enjoy.

Note: This will only work _ONCE_ every boot, /dev/klog gets flushed on read!

All devices that GNUMach provides are compiled in by default in the Debian
package I believe.

Huh? I don't know what  you are talking about here, if you are talking about
setting up a sub-hurd then maybe we are on the same track.  But I do not
see how that would help you right now.

Yes, as they are the last things that get run at boot.

You could check the GNUMach source code and see if this card is supported to
begin with.
