Linux does not detect my network card

Hello,
I have a PnP RealTek (RTL-8019) card which is NE200 compatible. I have configured my kernel (2.0.29) with the apropriate settings (ethernet support and ne2000 compatible), But when I boot the new Kernel it doesn't even seem to probe for the card. The card always sets itself to the address 2A0H and IRQ 10. So I tried to send that info as command line to my kernel from the lilo prompt but it still did not even probe for it. Once loged in I checked the desmg output for any hint of eth0 but did not find none.

Any help would be greatly apreciated.

Thanks
Marcelo

YO,

You must adjust you ne.c file, it's under /usr/src/linux/drivers/network(something like this)/ne.c
In that file you see at a moment (somewhere at the above) the following (0x330, 0x210, 0x230, 0x101), you remove all the 0x... and put within the () 0x2a0h, like this (0x2a0h,0)
Then save the file as ne.c in that same directory

Rebuild your kernel with the ne2000 option, copy the /usr/src/linux/atch/i386/boot/bzImage (or zImage) /boot/vmlinuz
go to the /usr/src/linux, do a "make bzlilo" and reboot

That should do the trick !
