Been using the CDROM version of m0n0wall since the first public beta with
three RealTek 8139 cards & they auto-detected just fine. Running
cdrom-1.1b13 at the moment minus one 8139 card without any problems so far.
Below is a partial output of status.php#interfaces :)


	inet netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast
	ether xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
	media: Ethernet autoselect (10baseT/UTP)
	status: active
	ether xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
	media: Ethernet autoselect (10baseT/UTP)
	status: active

BTW, all my 8139 cards are revision "C". Other revisions have caused
problems & I exchanged them for rev "C" which seems to work best with

Have a nice day!!
