Yes, but it doesn't seem to work. I notice the card doesn't light up
now, so I think I've simply lost some configuration with all this
thrashing about. There ought to be a dpkg-reconfigure something, I
suppose, but I don't know what.
Or perhaps the 8139too.o that is there now is the faulty one I
compiled... But how to reinstall the distro version?
Also, I have a menu of network configurations that pops up at each
boot, and if I try to make a new configuration, the list is simply
longer next time. But that does not include the configuration of the
driver, just IPs and so forth, so redoing that is pointless. I don't
remember what it told me about getting rid of that menu, though.

I did (typical newbie behaviour: thrash around and break everything,
while missing the obvious simple things) and the driver compiles with
just a couple of 'unused variable' warnings. Put it in place, but I
still need to sort out the configuraion issues mentioned above.
Anyone still have patience for this?
