Change Eth Device


when linux boots I there are a lot of errors with my eth car.how can I change the driver ? In my rc.modules I find modules for my network card and my usb device but how can I make them work ?
On default the slack uses the module 8139cp.o for my network RealTek but the correct is 8139too.o ;-)

You do realize that this is a Slackware forum and your question is about Redhat, right? You may have better luck posting this question in Networking or Software.

Enjoy!
