We are haveing an issue getting onboard network card on the ASUS P5RD1-VM working. We are setting up a k12ltsp system/network (see This is based on the RedHat Linux Distro, kernel 2.4. The network card on the motherboard is a Reltek RTL8201CL, and the MAC chipset is the ULi M1573.

So here is our problem. The system will net boot but it can't go past the network driver detection of the kernel. The kernels that are in the latest version of k12ltsp system does not support the network card that is integrated with the motherboard. The driver is available as a source code kernel patch and only for the latest 2.6 kernel. The driver is not yet in the mainline kernel as the network chip is too new to be included.

I dont know if thier is a way to get the newer driver to work with the 2.4 kernal or if thier is another Realtek/ULi driver that would be compatible.

Thanks for any help you may be able to provide,
