Hi Donald,
I downloaded your last release (v1.17) of your rtl8139.c driver
but I can't compile it indeed I get the following errors:

rtl8139.c:336: parse error before string constant
rtl8139.c:336: warning: type defaults to `int' in declaration of
rtl8139.c:336: warning: function declaration isn't a prototype
rtl8139.c:336: warning: data definition has no type or storage class
rtl8139.c: In function `set_rx_mode':
rtl8139.c:1440: `NETIF_MSG_RXFILTER' undeclared (first use in this
rtl8139.c:1440: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
rtl8139.c:1440: for each function it appears in.)
make: *** [rtl8139.o] Error 1

I have also a question: actually I use your rtl8139.c v1.16a 
driver with my pcmcia ethernet card and I have kernel 2.2.20, 
anyway I would install kernel 2.4.x on my laptop but my main doubt
is whether it's any chance to make my ethernet pcmcia card
work with kernel 2.4.x, what do you think about?
