To make Linux recogninzing RealTek 8139:
1. Check if you have module rtl8139 installed. Just see if
there is a file
/lib/modules/<kernel-version>/net/rtl8139.o If not, recompile
the kernel whith
2. add the following line to the file /etc/conf.modules
alias eth1 rtl8139
3. create a file /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth1:
IPADDR=192.168.1.1 #your IP addres here
NETMASK=255.255.255.0 #your netmask here
NETWORK=192.168.1.0 #your netwotk number here
BROADCAST=192.168.1.255 #your broadcast address here
ONBOOT=yes #if you want this interface up at boot
Thats it. Reboot and than check if eth1 is up. Just type

Here I need some additional info.
Do you have a subnet of real IP addresses or will use a subnet
of private IP addresses in you LAN? If it`s subnet of private
addresses, then you`ll have to
configure IP masquerading or install some kind of proxy server.
