I'm currently attempting to deploy a mobile IPv6 implementation over a linux testbed. For this undertaking I need to patch the kernel to support mobile IPv6. I obtained the kernel package, and selected the modules I needed as per the documentation. The patching went smoothly and I had to reboot to use the new kernel. Upon reboot, I discovered that eth0 and wlan0 are not there.
#ifup eth0 gives device does not seem to be present, #ifconfig eth0 gives error fetching interface information.
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 and wlan0 files are all there and include parameters ONBOOT="yes" and BOOTPROTO="dhcp". Services network and NetworkManager are started and running at levels 2, 3, 4, 5. #dmesg | less does not show anything about any NIC hardware, however. #lpsci however does show the Intel Ethernet NIC, and the Atheros Wireless NIC.
I would post the output of all of these commands, but since they are not connected to the internet my brief summary would have to do. Also, would anyone know if this is a result of the module selection in the patching process?
Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Also, #lsmod shows absolutely nothing....
