Both USB and the RTL8139 NIC are emulated PCI cards. So the question to answer is why do PCI cards fail to work.

Well I finally got around to installing Darwin 8.0.1 on both g3beige and
mac99 to test my patches, and the v2 patchset works fine for both here :)

There is some talk on the emaculation forums that the rtl8139 driver
worked fine for 10.4 vanilla but failed after a 10.4.11 upgrade, so
maybe something changed in a later version? Can you try debugging with
the latest v2 patchset applied OpenBIOS to try and work out what is
