DEC Ethernet card not working

When I try to run the command 'ifup eth0', I get:

Tulip device eth0 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization.

On the GUI network config tool, on the hardware tab, I can see the 
adapter.  I double click on this and get a dialog box that has, in the 
Adapter drop down box (which is disabled):
DECchip 21041 [Tulip pass 3]

The rest of the values on this are blank - is this the problem?

When I do lspci, I can see the adapter and it seems to have IRQ's and 
the like.
