the 8129 is a 100mb version of the 8029 / 8039 and uses the ne.o driver (isa) or
ne2k-pci (pci). Like all nexxx cards it requires the generic 8039.o module to
operate and should always be invoked by modprobe (rather than insmod).
the 100Mb 8139, although also a realtek animal is a different and uses the
8139.o (linux kernel source) or rtl8139.o (/unix/sysv) on the supplied diskette.
the 8139 is only ever supplied as a pci card and consequently requires no
options in /etc/modules.conf to operate
