SubjectRTL8139 conflicting with hard drive?
I'm having a problem with a NIC I tried to install this morning.
The chip on the NIC says its an RTL-8139B (it's a generic brand
NIC, and I didn't really need anything fancy).

When I install the NIC, and try to boot, the kernel complains
about not being able to find the root device. If I take it out,
everything is fine. I'm using kernel version 2.4.1, and my
motherboard is an Asus A7V.

I already have one RTL-8139B NIC installed, and it's just fine.

I also noticed that the kernel seemed to detect it as an IDE
controller, because two more IDE devices showed up in the boot
messages.

What could cause this? More importantly, what's a good remedy?
