Problem installing Mandrake 8.2 on Acer Veriton 5500

Intel have a driver for that one that I've found to be better than the one 
installed by default with RedHat (I'm not sure what Mandrake uses). It makes 
it easy to configure the card eg. 10Mbps or 100Mbps, half/full duplex etc.

I can't remember where exactly it was, but some browsing around the 
<sarcasm>wonderfully organised</sarcasm> site should turn up the driver
