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

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