Unable to set up fa311 NIC

Description of problem:
I am a newbie to Linux. I just installed it on a separate HDD and I boot from
a floppy. If I choose to install the NIC in the Redhat 7.3 Installation
wizard, at initial boot the line item that initializes eth0 fails (as opposed
to a green OK). I went back and reinstalled 7.3, this time without eth0
activated. I then went in and addded it manually. When I try to apply, I get
the attached dump that tells me to report here. My original NIC drvers had a
section for Redhat 7.0. I tried to compile these, and the new compiled module
did not work. I then went and upgraded to version 1.8 drivers, which included
a Redhat 7.1 folder. This came with a module that could be directly installed
into what I assume is the Kernel-Drivers-Folder (folders dev\...\2.4.18-3
\drivers . Or something like that)I still get the same error. I have attached
the resulting code information as dump.txt and error.txt. Please excuse me if
I have not used the correct terms for describing this technology, and if the is
already a bug report that I missed, just send me there and I will figure it
out. Thanks PS-On boot Linux says the NIC is on IRQ 10-with PNP OS installed
on and off in BIOS.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open Network Configuration
2.Use natsemi as adapter on IRQ 10
Actual Results: Code dump
Expected Results: Network Card WORKS!
