    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)

    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:

    --- drivers/net/r8169.c.orig 2007-10-29 05:37:02.000000000 +0000
    +++ drivers/net/r8169.c 2007-10-29 05:54:30.000000000 +0000

    { PCI_DEVICE(PCI_VENDOR_ID_REALTEK, 0x8168), 0, 0, RTL_CFG_1 },

    { PCI_DEVICE(PCI_VENDOR_ID_AT, 0xc107), 0, 0, RTL_CFG_0 },
    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?
