	In my kernel config, I have:

#
# Ethernet (10 or 100Mbit)
#
CONFIG_NET_ETHERNET=y
CONFIG_MACE=y
# 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 
room.  :-p
