Another update of sorts for this chipset.
I replied to realtek with my issues with the last driver they sent me, dated 0106.2009 and included my errors from the terminal, and my research into why that particular driver would not compile.
They have now replied back with a new driver attached dated 1029.2009. Hopefully this one will compile properly and work so that we can get away from ndiswrapper. They seem very eager to help and support this chipset in linux.
I will give this driver a try today and report back with my results.
