Soln for Ethernet connection error


I use with winXp and Linux.My broadband conectn works with XP using Realtek rtl-8139d PCI fast Ethernet adapter. But when I instal RHLinux9 and try to configure net.I found errors as below.Can any one help me ?

While linux boots....
Bringing up interface eth0: 8139cp device eth0 doesn't present,delaying initialisation.[FAILED]

NIC Auto detected at eth0 under...
N/w configuration -> Hardware tab as
Realtek rtl-8139c+ series

I added new device as 8139c+ series at eth0 under
N/w configuration -> devices tab
clicking "Activate" button -> 8139cp device eth0 doesn't present,delaying initialisation.

I tried Some diagnose commands like.....

[root@localhost root]# lspci | grep -i ethernet
01:02.0 Ethernet controller: Unknown device 1904:2031 (rev 01)

[root@localhost root]#cat /etc/modprobe.conf
No such file or directory.

[root@localhost root]# cat /etc/modules.conf
alias usb-controller ehci-hcd
alias usb-controller1 usb-uhci
alias sound-slot-0 i810_audio
post-install sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -L >/dev/null2>&1 || :
pre-remove sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -S >/dev/null 2>&1|| :
alias eth0 8139cp

[root@localhost root]# lsmod | grep 8139

[root@localhost root]# modprobe 8139cp
/lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/drivers/net/8139cp.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/8139cp.o: insmod
/lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/drivers/net/8139cp.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/drivers/net/8139cp.o: insmod 8139cp failed

[root@localhost root]# cat /etc/hosts
# Do not remove the following line, or various programs
# that require network functionality will fail. localhost.localdomain localhost

[root@localhost root]# ifconfig eth0
eth0: error fetching interface information: Device not found

[root@localhost root]# ifconfig eth0 up
eth0: unknown interface: No such device

Advance thanks.....

I'm sorry for you but it looks like a fake realtek.
