The procedure to activate rtl8019 on linux :
Hint:RTL8019 is ne2000 compatable.

  Step 1: Make sure that kernel source code is included.
  		(check /usr/src/linux)

  Step 2: Recompile kernel:
                cd to /usr/src/linux, then type 'make menuconfig'

                Select the following options(mark them as '*')
                 .enable module support
                 .networking support
                 .TCP/IP networking
                 .network device support
                 .ethernet
                 .ne2000/ne1000 support

  Step 3: After options are selected, exit and run
                make dep;make clean;make zImage;
          If no serious error happens, the new kernel 'zImage' will be in
             /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/zImage.
          Copy this file to root.
          Modify '/etc/lilo.conf' file to point to this new file.
          Run 'lilo'
          Reboot

  Step 4: When system boots, the driver will be loaded. Then the driver will
          scan {0x300,0x280,0x320,0x340,0x360} port to see if a card is 
          there.
            (You can run 'dmesg' to see the boot message)
          PS: In some case, PNPISA may assign ioports not in the range. you
              can use 'rset8019' (in DOS) to set the card in jumpless mode
              and set I/O Address to one of these I/O Ports.

  Step 5: Run netconfig to setup TCP/IP
          (Run 'ifconfig' or 'netstat -i' to see if there is a interface 
          'ne0')
