I had the same problem, but with a live linux cd (knoppix). I dont know why Linux "deactivate" the Realtek LAN. To solve this trouble, I updated the BIOS version and then I reseted the BIOS (via jumper in MB). When I did this, XP shows me the LAN. But, unfortunately, I didnt load linux after XP recognize the LAN.
Why dont you installl MAcOSX its totally compatible with DG 41RQ I installed iAtkos 10,5,7 and it works flawlessly i also added a GeFORCE 8400GS 512Mb and i got Quartz extreme and the LAn has never bothered ever since
