Intel dh55tc, supported Linux OS (The dh55tc files are in later kernels)
http://www.intel.com/support/motherb.../CS-031186.htm

End of Regular Life Cycle, EL4 : February 29, 2012
https://access.redhat.com/support/po...pdates/errata/
You will probably find no dh55tc backported to kernel 2.6.9 .

Things to consider ...
1) Use an older mother board.
2) Use a comtemporary OS.
3) Build a new kernel from the "kernel-2.6.18-164.10.1.el5.src.rpm" source

http://en.sourceforge.jp/projects/sf...-1.6.3.tar.gz/
> e1000e-1.6.3.tar.gz

cd e1000e-1.6.3/src/ && make ; su ; make install : OK on "EL4".
( An older version of e1000e.ko is already present. Example :
/lib/modules/2.6.9-78.0.22.EL/kernel/drivers/net/e1000e/e1000e.ko ).

Prerequisites : gcc-c++, make, kernel-devel :
The kernel-devel package must match the kernel in use.
The command 'uname -r' will reply with kernel version.
