isapnp rtl8019 not working. Cannot get to the internet

Hi everyone.

I'm back again. it's been about five days trying to get my connection... but i'll do it. i believe it's worth it. So, here it comes: I'm running Slack 9.1. have a Genius lan, chipset k1306023, wich windows2000 says it's a Realtek 8019 isa-pnp. When i installed i used the isa-pnp driver, wich apparently was not a good idea -i'm a newbie, and thats the only one i could get to work on the install process-. my internet conection isn't working. ¿how do i know? open the browser, can't find a thing. ifconfig -a only shows a loopback device. I have no eth0. When my box boots, it detects the card. I've been told that my card should use a ne2000 driver, but to set it up i need the io adress, and can't find it. Tryied modprobe ne io=0x300, doesn't work. Windows says that the io interval (intervalo de io, that's the translation i make) it's 02c0-02df. modprobe ne io=0x2c0 or io=0x2df don't work either. ¿what can i do? been in this for too long... have no idea about what to do...

Downloaded a setup for my card, runned the thing (on windows), and didn't detect it! I was told this could help me to reconfigure the thing and find the io adress. While reading the manual for installing the card, it sayed i ougth to compile the kernel to make it support the ne2000. So i runned a tool for it (don't remember the name, it's on KDE wich i installed from the slack cd) and look up, but i found nothing related to ne2000 support. But (i think) in order to be -the support- in the kernel, i must use modprobe. but to use modprobe, i need the io adress wich i can't find! ¿is this right? ¿or i'm just a tired, confused newbie?

Sorry about such a long thing... could anybody give me a hand?
