[realtek] realtek 8100

Just between thee and me, I'd stay away from the Realtek line
altogether...at least from my perspective, I've had nothing but trouble with
the 8139too module while using Linux-Mandrake 8.0, although I can't speak
for anyone else.
I'd stick with a tried and true NE2000 or NE200 clone or anything using the
DEC Tulip driver (tulip.o).
Just my .02c American :)
