Realtek Ethernet with Fedora 4

I'm trying to get my Compaq Presario to connect to a network.

Here is the relevant portion of lspci -v:

06:00.0 Ethernet Controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ (rev 10)
Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company: Unknown device 3080
Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 64, IRQ 16
I/O ports at 3000 [size=256]
Memory at b010800 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=256]
Capabilities [50] Power Management version 2

Fedora Core 4 detected the type of card correctly during installation, but currently the configuration screen only has the Adapter field filled in. The other fields (IRQ, MEM, IO, IO1, IO2, DMA0, DMA1) are empty.

Anyone have any ideas?

to see if the 8139too module which is used by this nic is loaded in the kernel and then try to configue your network. If there are any errors take a look at the output of
