It looks like that card uses a RealTek chip (8139) so you need to use the RealTek 8139 module. You'll want to see if you have the 8139too module, or something similiar. Try to do a modprobe for 8139too, to see if it exists.

1: insert the driver as module,

#insmod fealnx.o

2: bind your card to an IP address

#ifconfig eth0 ${IPADDR} broadcast ${BROADCAST} netmask ${NETMASK}

3: add your card to IP routing table,

#route add -net ${NETWORK} netmask ${NETMADK} eth0

4: now, you should be able to ping local network.

Ok, give that a try and see what happens.

You could take a look at compiling your own kernel? It's really not that bad if you follow the documentation. Check at http://www.tldp.org for kernel recompile how-to's.
