Hi Roger,
Is this the Intex one? If so, it is not RealTek. It is a Silan Fast
Ethernet.  It doesn't work on 2.6 kernels, I believe
(http://kernelyogi.livejournal.com/4648.html). It does work under 2.4.
Your options, if you can't write a driver -
1> Go get a new card that works in your distro.
2> Use NDISwrapper.
3> Use 2.4 kernel
