Re: internet access using DHCP works only on windows

here's my dmesg output:
8139cp 10/100 PCI Ethernet driver v0.0.6 (Nov 19, 2001)
8139cp: pci dev 00:0e.0 (id 10ec:8139 rev 10) is not an 8139C+ compatible
8139cp: Try the "8139too" driver instead.
8139too Fast Ethernet driver 0.9.24
PCI: Found IRQ 10 for device 00:0e.0
eth0: RealTek RTL8139 Fast Ethernet at 0xcc81a000, 00:e0:7d:91:86:e7, IRQ 10
eth0:  Identified 8139 chip type 'RTL-8139C'
I verified on my ethernet board and it says 8139C
which one its on use? 8139cp and 8139too module? Where can I setup them?
