Prostar 8593/Realtek 8139 NIC

trying to get the laptop to use the NIC but I've been having problems.

I've compiled both drivers into the kernel seperately (realtek 8139, and

With just the driver, ifup etho gives me "resources temporarily
unavailable".  With some suggestions I tried to pass kernel parameters
through lilo with:


dmesg | grep eth0 shows that it got the I/O address right, but the IRQ

Any suggestions welcome,
