  I'm using a RealTek PCI ethernet card in my linux machine right now with Caldera OpenLinux, and it works fine without any special drivers.  Since the card is fully NE2000 compatible, you can simply compile the kernel with support for the NE2000 (It's in the "other ISA cards" section of the "Networking" section), or compile it as a module (ne.o).
  If you look at the NET-2 HOWTO, it lists many different ethernet cards, and the RealTek is listed as supported as an NE2000.  If you need any help compiling your kernel to support the card, let me know...
Good luck,

Experimenting?  Why, is something not working properly?
