kernel bug in 2.6.25-14.fc9.x86_64 for r8101E NIC?



Hi - I have a r8101E NIC (10/100 Mbit/sec) on a Toshiba Satellite
L355D-S7815 laptop (AMD Dual Core 64 bit) which I'm trying to
get working.

There's appears to be a bug in the default kernel (2.6.25-14.fc9.x86_64)
for Fedora 9:
   
    Sep 24 09:02:22 localhost kernel: r8169 Gigabit Ethernet driver
                                                              
2.2LK-NAPI loaded
    Sep 24 09:02:22 localhost kernel: ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:04:00.0[A]
                                                                 -> GSI
17 (level, low) -> IRQ 17
    Sep 24 09:02:22 localhost kernel: BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL
                                                      pointer
dereference at 0000000000000208

This bug prevents the installation of Fedora 9 unless the LAN device is
disabled.

I downloaded the r8108E driver from RealTek which I can build and
install, but the problem is I can *NOT*

    rmmod r8169
    ERROR: Module in use

and I can not

    insmod r8108
    insmod: error inserting 'r8101.ko' : -1 Invalidmodule format

I am dead in the water.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
