The difference between .9 and .10 is that .10 has s a slightly smaller
footprint.  Are you sure "size rtl8139.tmp" gives < 32kB? You may have
to take out all extra options to cut it down. Also a bit has to be
subtracted from 32kB because the BIOS uses a bit of memory at the top
of 640k. What about other NICs, does this happen with those?
