Network setup problem in a x86 target (RTEMS 4.9.2)

Dear all,

Apologies if this question has been posed before.

I am trying to get a workable environment for RTEMS-Apps development (rev. 
4.9.2). The target CPU is a Pentium M, 1.4 GHz (x86 architecture) in a 
PC104 which is going to be part of an embedded system for robotic 
applications. Everything works fine, including the upload of the image 
from the host with Etherboot, except for the network setup on the target.. 
Oddly, the network commands (ifconfig, netstats, route) are missing in 
RTEMS "shell" (I'm using the fileio.exe demo application). I have changed 
the network driver in the bsp.h (libbsp of pc386)  to ne2000, as this is 
the only one which does not crash  when running the "netdemo" apps, but 
anyway no network commands can be found in the shell. 

Configuration flags: - - target = i386-rtems4.9   - - enable-networking - 
- enable-rtemsbsp="pc386"  - - prefix=/opt/rtems-4..9/

In fact I've tried configuring the system for all the available bsps, with 
no success at all. The network interface of the target is a Fast Ethernet 
10/100, Intel 82562 chipset.
BTW, I get compilation errors if I add the symbol 

Do you think it is a driver-related problem or should I change other 
parameters in a configuration file?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
