Realtek Linux Driver for RTL8101E and CentOS 5.1
We got a new desktop machine for a client the other day, and I’ve been banging my head against the wall trying to get the right drivers for the NIC card.
Enter Vincent Verhagen with the perfect solution that even goes above and beyond what I needed. Sweet!
I’ve written a small script that checks to see if the correct kernel module exists. If not, it compiles the module and restarts the network services. It’s compatible with CentOS 4(.5) and 5, but will most likely work with all Red Hat derivates.

Nice work, Vincent, and thanks for sharing!
