What template and startup type are you using?  It looks like you've 
tried to use a floppy startup which only uses low RAM and will not
be able to run larger programs, e.g. those with a networking stack.

Try using the 'net' template with a normal RAM startup.  You'll have
to have some way to load it onto your PC, e.g. RedBoot or GRUB.

Hint: you might think about updating to the latest CVS.  Support for
a PC+Realtek device have been in CVS for quite a while now.
