Why?  The sk98lin drivers are much more recently updated and work just fine.  
I am using the sk98lin with a 3C940/3C2000 which comes on the ASUS SK8V 
motherboard.

The only current problem is that this NIC is not detected by the anaconda 
installer (check bugzilla) but the driver works ... at least at 100Mbps ... 
there are some comments in bugzilla about it not working at 1000Mbps.

I forget, you may need to manually add "alias eth0 sk98lin" to the 
/etc/modprobe.conf file.  one of the problems (already bugzilla'ed) is that 
the anaconda installer does not manually prompt to select an driver if it 
does not recognize the NIC.
