in which case you shouldn't have to modprobe it, i think.

on my machine, usbnet doesnt appear in the list of modules until it is
started by connecting the gumstix. connecting the gumstix loads it

but if i 'sudo modprobe usbnet' before connecting the gumstix, that will
load the module also, i can verify it by 'lsmod |grep usbnet'.

if you connect the gumstix and type 'ifconfig', do you see a network
adapter entry called 'usb0'?

or have you tried '/sbin/modprobe usbnet'? (just a guess)

you could 'find / -name modprobe' also.
