CardBus Ethernet Card Installation on Linux
1. If you are using RedHat 7.0, you must download the new rpm at to replace the old pcmcia-cs-3.1.19 to
pcmcia-cs-3.1.24-1.i586.rpm..rpm, which can be found at "RedHat_7.0/sourcecode/" 

To unzip: "rpm -ivh pcmcia-cs-3.1.24-1.i586.rpm..rpm"

2. Compile the source code 
copy the source code rtl8139.c and kern_compat.h pci-scan.h  to a directory .
and exectue "gcc -DCARDBUS -DMODULE -D__KERNEL__ -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O6 -c -I/usr/src/linux/include rtl8139.c -o realtek_cb.o -I/usr/src/linux/pcmcia-cs-3.1.19/include/"
This will create a realtek_cb.o file
Note: When copying the source code rtl8139.c and kern_compath.h pci-scan.h  to a directory in Linux, please make sure the file names stay as kern_compath.h.

or run "\. make.bat"---> make.bat = "gcc -DCARDBUS -DMODULE -D__KERNEL__ -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O6 -c -I/usr/src/linux/include rtl8139.c -o realtek_cb.o -I/usr/src/linux/pcmcia-cs-3.1.19/include/"
This will create a realtek_cb.o file

3. Copy driver :
-->copy the file "realtek_cb.o" to "lib/module/2.2.16-22/pcmcia"

4.Edit config:
-->Add the following 5 lines to the file "/etc/pcmcia/config"

# Device driver definitions

drvice "realtek_cb"
   class "network" module "cb_enabler", "realtek_cb"


# CardBus Cards

card "10/100 CardBus Card"
  manfid 0x0000, 0x021b
  bind "realtek_cb"

The value 0x0000, 0x021b can be read by typing 
"cardctl ident" on console with one card socket
5.Restart the computer
"/etc/rc.d/init.d/pcmcia restart"
