GRUB 2 does not have networking support yet.  Better use GRUB Legacy.
Ah. That explains it.

lots of strings describing the different supported netcards. However,
your e1000 is not supported (although e100 is... are they compatible? I
don't think so. If they are you'll need to hack the PCI identification
I don't think so either. I did a search on the Intel site, and those cards have been discontinued for over 8 years now.

E1000 (aka Intel 8254X - series) is the interface that comes on pretty much every Intel-based motherboard's built-in NIC for at least the last 3 years or so. Probably 8 years, since the last series was discontinued.

Anyway, thanks for the (apparently off-topic) help.
