Did anyone ever answer this question?

Csyap: do you mind detailing the _exact steps_ of you compiled the 8139too.c
driver?  I'm just learning myself and it would be great if we could share

I'm on Redhat 7.0, I upgraded modutils to 2.3.19-2 using RPM and compiled a
2.4.0-test10 kernel (which I can boot with fine - but no network, using a
Asus CUSL2 i815 main board).
