Output when running Debian 6:

02:0b.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. 
RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ (rev 10)
        Subsystem: Micro-Star International Co., Ltd. 865PE Neo2-V Mainboard
        Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 32, IRQ 23
        I/O ports at cc00 [size=256]
        Memory at feafff00 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=256]
        Capabilities: <access denied>
        Kernel driver in use: 8139too

The GNU/Hurd I am using is Debian, not the latest but the one before
that (the one from late April IIRC).

I contacted the Debian mailing lists about it. I wasn't expecting
anyone here to try to solve my problem :)

Thanks, I'll see what I can find.
