Please excuse me if this is the wrong forum to be asking questions like  
these, but I don't see any "user" level lists. This doesn't surprise me as  
DragonFly is not officially released yet, but this did not stop me from  
trying to get it installed!

With the help of some friendly people on IRC I was able to install  
DragonFly from the ISO and get it to boot from disk.

I'm now stuck at the networking part and wonder if kernel support is  
available for motherboards with an integrated RealTek 8201 based ethernet.  
( http://www.asus.com/prog/spec.asp?m=A7N8X-X&langs=01# ) If support for  
this is not yet available, how hard would it be for it to be added? I  
understand that a simple hardware driver is probably on the bottom of the  
priority list for the development team.

Kind regards,
