Windows NT sucks at detecting hardware. This is not a problem of the hardware, but a problem with WinNT.

In order to make your Realtek card work (I have one of those), you have to manually add the driver to WinNT, in the Network Control Panel applet. Select Adapters and then click Add...

You can download the latest driver for the 8029AS from here:

Here's a tip then that might help you in the future:

Install the PnP driver for Windows NT. It's a known fact that NT isn't a PnP OS, but this driver gives it some of the PnP functionality. The driver can be found in the Windows NT 4 CD.
