Question Network device driver problem

HI,

I am writing a network device driver for RTL8139c card on 2.6.18 kernel ... I am facing few queries listed below

1. Can i able to at all write a driver for RTL8139C or Realtek had designed new chip for 2.6 series kernel?

2. If no then which driver file 2.6.18 uses .. Is it 8139too.c or 8139cp.c? or its any other than this...

I had tried to develop my driver from Malta linux user group ...tutorial for writing network device driver for linux ... But that tutorial is based on 2.4 kernel and i am not able to compile the source using 2.6 ...whereas source is easily complied under 2.4.22 kernel....

Seeking advice .... And if u dont understand query please feel free to ask ... Thanks Smilie
