Using 7.00 HP3 bootcd.
The imaging CD's kernel is 2.6.5-7.244
My Linux workstation is running kernel 2.6.5-7.191

Our first problem with the imaging CD was that it would hang while
detecting PCMCIA devices. We used tips in the forum to get past this by
specifying at boot:
manual NoPCMCIA=1

Now it gets past that step, but we cannot get networking to work.

From what I can tell, the imaging CD does not recognize the on-board
NIC on our new Core Duo notebook. The NIC is listed in Windows as
"Realtek RTL 8168/811 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet NIC".

I found the source code for the driver on Realtek's web site here:

Some of my co-workers were finally able to get the Makefile working so
that it compiled .o and .ko files.

I added the .ko file to the imaging CD's initrd (I copied the r1000.ko
file into /lib/modules/2.6.5-7.22-defaultupates/initrd). The imaging CD
still claims it cannot find a network device.

I went to a bash prompt, went to
/lib/modules/2.6.5-7.22-defaultupates/initrd, and typed insmod r1000.ko

It tells me:
insmod: error inserting r1000.ko: -1 invalid module format

If we run dmesg, a few lines stand out:

iamt: no version for "struct_module" found: kernel tainted.
iamt: module not supported by Novell setting U taint flag

Any ideas how to fix this, and/or does anyone have this module
