SubjectAbit F-190HD Onboard rlt8169 Ethernet Controller
The Abit Fatal1ty F-190HD motherboard has a Realtek rlt8169 gigabit
ethernet controller onboard. It shows up in lspci as:

02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Unknown device 0001:8168 (rev 01)
Subsystem: ABIT Computer Corp. Unknown device 2410

It is not recognised by 2.6.24-rc1. I'm guessing it's because the
vendor ID is 0001 rather than something sensible. I patched the kernel
as follows:

This was enough to get the device recognised and operational. (Only
RTL_CFG_2 works, I have no idea why.) Is this the correct approach?
