    network adapter not found


    I recently changed my network adpter
    now i have an Intex adapter which is (INTEX RTL 8139D)

    My previous network card was automatically identified by Linux (Fedora core 3)

    But it is not able to identify it now.When I configure my ethernet connection , my card is not exactly mentioned in the network adapter list so I choose RTL8139 D from the list but after configuring when i try to activate it says" device not found ..delaying initialization"

    it even gives this messg while booting at the time of "configuring eth 0"

    As my sytem is dual boot i tried to configure it in Windows and my card worked fine, how can i sort this out........
    will changing the slot will be of any help.....as my previous card was in other slot.......

    RealTek has Linux drivers available for download, click here
    But I think the 8139 is already supported in the kernel.
    I have a similar card, well it has the same chipset, and I also have a module running, it's name is "8139too" and "8139cp" So try loading the modules as root.
    Code:
    modprobe 8139
    Then try configuring your network settings.

    Let me know if it helps, or not.

    yeah i downloaded the reqd file from ther

    I was facing bit problem in configuring it.
    according to its "readme.txt" what is to be mentioned in in "NEW_INCLUDE_PATH"
    it says

    4.This program can be compiled using the attached Makefile.
    Please remember to SPECIFY "NEW_INCLUDE_PATH" in Makefile according to your linux environment.
    does that mean the normal path where it is stored ?

    That's what it sounds like to me.
    Did you go ahead and try the make command anyway, you may not need to change anything.
    And did you try the modprobe command, to see if its already installed?
