Check the PC's bio's to insure you have the onboard Nic enabled.
Since you can not see the onboard Nic in the boot log as an unknown
device the motherboard bios must have the Nic disabled.

Thanks for the input Greg.

Please note that I have looked at the output from ifconfig. Also
note that
the driver recognizes that the DFE-530TX uses the RealTek 8139 chip.

Any other suggestions on how to get the RealTek 8201BL chip to work?
