In /lib/modules/2.0.32/net you should find a file called ibmtr.o.  That is
the driver.  Make sure that you are doing '/sbin/modprobe ibmtr' and not
'/sbin/modprobe ibmtk' - i thought that it was a typo in the first email,
but since i've seen it twice, i'll point it out.

If you have X going, it may be easier to just use the control-panel.  but
make sure that the ibmtr.o file exists in the /lib/modules/2.0.32/net
direcotry first.
