I figured out how to get ethernet working, and I figured I might as well share if anyone else is having the same problem...
I'm not exactly a Linux veteran so feel free to correct me on some stuff (e.g. if my method isn't "safe" or whatnot), but this is how it works for me:
1) Run "make load" and insmod on the driver that comes on the motherboard CD... it's called 3c2000.o.
2) Go to network device controls, and delete all network cards, then add one that's called "eth0" and for the type of card, choose "3Com 3c590/3c595/3c90x/3c980".
3) Select it from the listbox and activate it.
4) In your /etc/rc.d/rc.local file, add the line "insmod <directory which stores>/3c2000.o"
Now, on boot, Redhat will always load the file and internet *should* work.
Keep in mind that during the boot sequence it will still say that "determining IP information for device eth0" failed. That's OK... it'll still work once X starts.
