The driver (kernel module) for this NIC is 8139too and is available in all distros. All you have to do is to run as root
Code:
modprobe 8139too
Verify with
Code:
lsomd
dmesg
that the module is loaded and the interface created and then use your distro's network tools to configure your network settings.

Regards

Using modprobe 8139too command i m getting following error message:-

/lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/drivers/net/8139too.o: init_module: No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
/lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/drivers/net/8139too.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/drivers/net/8139too.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/drivers/net/8139too.o: insmod 8139too failed

also lsmod is not showing any newly installed module for LAN Card...

what shall i do next?

Since 8139too didn't work take a look at the output of
Code:
dmesg
to see if you find any useful info why the driver is failing to load. You can also try to load rtl8139 or 8139cp (whichever exists in your distro)
Code:
modprobe rtl8139
modprobe 8139cp
If nothing works, consider using a more recent distro.

Regards
