I assume that you are talking the generic-pc build?

Try and capture the output of the kernel as it boots - look for entries that 
correspond to your network cards (what are they by the way?) and make sure 
they look sane with no errors.

In my experience , if the kernel finds 'em, prints out a MAC address and and 
an IRQ, then they are probably working OK.  Make a note of the names and then 
proceed to the m0n0 console and configure the mapping between the physical 
network devices and the logical m0n0 devices LAN and WAN.

Then you will need a reboot, then set your addresses up and see if it works.
