Ok, this is where I got messed up (No grub line :)). I originally had the rpmforge sk98ln rpm installed to make this realtek nic work before I tried this, then using this procedure which I followed to a "t" didn't mask the device from Dom0? It loaded the driver and setup the nic? I know I had the pci slot number right. I thought the initrd was wrong, so I looked through grub and looked at what it loaded, then checked the timestamp of the one I made with that command and it was consistent? I assume something still wasn't right with my mkinitrd, it completed with zero verbosity, mayeb I should try to use -v and see what happens.

Any ideas?
