RTL8169 NIC and Fedora Core 2


I'm relatively new to Linux. I resently installed Fedora Core 2 on my laptop. Everything except for my network card (Realtek RTL8169/8110 Gigabit Ethernet NIC) has been working great. It appears as though it is installed correctly. It is installed in Eth0, set to start up on login, and obtain IP address automatically. It doesn't seem to want to activate, the activation fails when I do it manually.

I've been doing a little bit of research on the problem and came across a bug report 119664 on bugzilla. I followed the link at the bottom notice to a patch.

I guess my quetion is two fold. One, am I going in the right direction to solve the problem (would placing the patch somewhere solve the problem)?
Two, how do I go about installing the patch (where does it go in the filesytem, and what do I name the file)?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
