Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

As I say, I'm totally new to linux (did my first ever install earlier today), so I've tried to find out what you asked, but please correct me if I've got the wrong bit:
Typing lsmod into the terminal tells me that 8139too is loaded (and is used by mii whatever that may be).
I'm not entirely sure what you meant by that last sentence, but typing dmesg into the terminal, I found the lines:
8139too Fast Ethernet Driver 0.9.27
Eth0: Realtek RTL8139 at 0xd0804000 00:40:2b:26:6d:f8, IRQ17
Eth0: Identified 8139 Chip type 'RTL-8100b/8139D'
Originally posted by Rnd227 Had the same problem for weeks.
GO to boot manager in control center and enable option "noapic" on boot.
When I do that, both the eth0 and the soundcard pass, but then when it tries to load KDE, it hangs? It stays on the screen with just a blue background and the cursor as a cross, before the splash screen where it tells you what its doing.
Apic is (if I understand correctly) BIOS related : its a way to handle I/O on (pci ?) cards.
Shouldn't be related to the start or non start of KDE
Maybe you should try to start in console mode and check if your network configuration starts properly. If it is (and noapic helped) then try to launch X and in case of failure look at the log and tell what it says... we'll take it from there...
