The /etc/modules file is just a plain-text list of modules that are

When running the latest kernel that had this issue, try running
"modprobe g_ether" on the openmoko command line. That should enable the
usb ethernet module. If that works, you can then add just "g_ether" as a
line in the /etc/modules file to automatically do this modprobe every
