D-Link DFE-530TX+ not working under Fedora Core 3

Hi all,

I'm having trouble with my D-Link DFE-530TX+ NIC under Fedora Core 3. It seems like the card was recognized during the install phase, but I can't get an IP address for it at boot up using DHCP. I try to manually activate the the card, but it fails everytime. It looks like the correct driver (8139too) is instaled and is being used by the system. The device comes up using ifconfig, it just doesn't have an IP address. Could this be caused by using the wrong driver?

Has anyone had any (good) luck or experience with this card?

Thanks for your time,
