It certainly was not plain to me from your page, wonderful though it

On your page, you say:

Cards with the RealTek 8029 chip.
Cards with the Winbond 89C940 chip.
The Compex RL2000 card.


PCI NE2000 Cards and the v2.0 Kernel

All of the above cards are supported with the v2.0 kernel as well, but
you have to apply a patch to the kernel source first.

which seems to me to "mean" that pci ne2000 cards in general and the
realtek chip in particular are not supported by the vanilla 2.0.*
kernel. Could you perhaps change the wording to make it clear that you
are talking about _modules_?

Regards and *thanks for the great work*!
