I am trying to get my ethernet device working. It uses the Realtek 8139
chip and I am using RedHat 9.0 (kernel 2.4.20-6). After booting lsmod
reports that the 8139too module (driver) is loaded but during the
initialization part of booting I get the following error messgage:

Determining IP information for eth0...iptables: No chain/target/match by
that name failed.
iptables: Bad rule (does a matching rule exist in that chain?)

I have seen some reports that suggest using the noapic option during
boot so I edit grub.conf to read:

kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.20-6 ro root=LABEL=/ hdc=ide-scsi noapic

However, this does not appear to be solving the problem.

Did I modify the grub.conf file correctly?

Does anyone have suggestions on how to fix this problem?
