Integrated Realtek 8139 problems w/gentoo
Well, I had no problems actually installing the Gentoo system - all went sweetly, and the network card worked just like I expected it to.
However, come to restart the system, and things are less rosy. I can configure an IP address/mask and default gateway, but no joy in terms of actually communicating with any other machines.
The system is a Shuttle FX41 board with linux 2.4.20-gentoo-r5 running on it. There is no APIC support, as the processor does not support APIC. The network card module in use is the 8139too driver.
I see the following entries in the log if I try to ping the default gateway (which does response to ICMP!). This includes loading the 8139too driver.

Any suggestions on how to get this to work?
