In my kernel config, I have:
# Ethernet (10 or 100Mbit)
# CONFIG_MACE_AAUI_PORT is not set
I saw no reason to bother with the Apple interface, although my 8600 has
one as well.

Is this during the installation, or afterward? I believe the most-used
networking options are built into the LiveCD kernel, so modprobe would
not accomplish anything if the ones you need are built in.
You say it's plugged into a hub -- is this Mac going to need to go
through DHCP, or NAT, or something in order to get an IP? You may be out
of the realm of PPC-specific stuff in that case. :)
As a useless side note, I never figured out how to get local video
working on my beige beast, so all of my access is by SSH from another
