Okay, I'm very new to linux and kind of blundering around in dark. Well, by now I'm sure of one thing. I need to be able to get online in linux so I can stop switching to windows...but when I checked my rc.modules file in etc/rc.d I did not find a module that loaded my Realtek 8029 card, I only found a module that loaded the Realtek 8129 and 8139 which said specifically NOT 8029. I have no idea where to look from this point because all of my sources assume that I will find my card in this list. Please help?

For the Realtek 8029 card you should be able to use the "ne2k-pci" kernel module, because as far as I know, the 8029 chipset is a ne2000 clone.

From the console, as root run "modprobe -v ne2k-pci" and see if that detects the card. If so, you can restart your networking (or add it into your rc.modules and reboot).
