I installed RedHat 7.0, however it failed to detect the network card - a ISA RealTek RTL8019(AS). I understand this is a clone of the NE2000. and a check revealed that the installation does include the NE2000 driver, so presumably that is not the problem.

I tried Don Beckers (becker@scyld.com) Diagnostic program ne2k-diag.c: for NE2000 ethercards, and this produced the following
output:

Checking the ethercard at 0x300.
Register 0x0d (0x30d) is ff
Failed initial NE2000 probe, value ff.
8390 registers: ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff
SA PROM 0: ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff
SA PROM 0x10: ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff

Invalid signature found, wordlength 2.

I also tried isapnptools, it ran but it did not appear do anything, this may be due to the fact that I did'nt really understand how to setup the config file.

I would greatly appreciate it if somebody out there could help
