[realtek] Does rtl8139 work with kernel 2.4.18?

I'm trying to update a diskless client, a tyan dual processor mb with 2
pentium 200 cpus and a Longshine rtl8139 network card to kernel 2.4.18. Since
SuSe doesn't ship with Donalds driver anymore I first tried 8139too and it
doesn't work. Apparently I need the ethernet driver built into the kernel and
since I am not that familiar with hacking the kernel I had to do some reading
until I managed to get the rtl8139 driver to compile.
First problem: Compilation results in a naming conflict of
"pci_find_capabilities". This is exported by pci.o. So I renamed all
occurences to something else. After this building the kernel worked.
Second problem: When booting the kernel now no adapter is recognised at all.
Has anybody tried rtl8139 with 2.4.18 kernel. @Donald: is this supposed to
