You need to install the pci-scan module in addition to the rtl8139
module.  The source for pci-scan is also available from Donald
Becker's website if you don't already have it.

If you install the pci-scan module into your modules directory,
run "depmod -a" and then "modprobe rtl8139" the kernel will work
out the dependencies for itself.

BTW, when you send mail to a mailing list, please send plain text.
