[realtek] RTL8139 and RTL8201

Good morning,

I was hoping someone could answer one of my burning questions... I have 
a ROCKS cluster with CentOS 4.3 and I recently upgraded all of the 
hardware on the nodes. The motherboard I chose was MSI K8NGM2-L with 
onboard ethernet. The ethernet chip says RTL8201CL. I would like to know 
if this chip uses the same driver as RTL8139 (8139too.c). Currently, I 
cannot PXE boot any of the nodes because of what appears to be a driver 
issue (I was previously using an RTL8100BL chip without issue). I need 
to find the right driver; forcedeth .30 doesn't work.

Does anyone have experience with the RTL8201 chip? I know this list is 
for RTL8139, but I can't seem to find an answer anywhere.
