AFAIK there's realtek 8139 driver in the standard kernel tree, so there is no need to download additional drivers. first try
Code:
 modprobe 8139too
, but if you don't have the module (usually in /lib/modules/kernel-version/) you would have to recompile your kernel.

its a command that lists devices on your PCI bus.
you dont need the drivers.... redhat9 comes with the drivers.
