I'd be happy if u can help me with this in the same topic, since I think it's the same solution..

another little thing :

How can I do this automatically?
root@WhiteCastle:/home/zuki# cat start
modprobe 8139too
dhcpcd eth0
dhclient eth0
dhclient-script eth0
ifconfig eth0 down
ifconfig eth0 up
as root, even when I connect as other user?

you can make an alias in you /etc/modprobe.conf file. just add

alias 8139too eth0
that should take care of it. You can also configure your interfaces configuration file but have done that in a while. Someone else may have to help you with that. As for your video card it would be better it you open up a new thread. That way if some find this thread and has the same problem they won't get confused with two different issues.
