Ah, apologies. When I couldn't see my follow up posts hitting the list, 
I figured I'd sign up and post it again.

The linked bug entry indicates issues with the driver initializing 
certain cards etc. As previously stated, my issue was mainly in 
multicast. I was able to get the machine up and on the network without 
issue in the 2.6.21 kernel from F7. Though there's obviously issues with 
the newer Realtek cards and the post 2.6.20 kernels.

FYI, The Realtek driver release 1.06 (r1000.ko), although not officially 
supporting the 2.6 kernel (the Makefile just needed modification) works 
extremely well for us here.

If I can help test experimental patchs or anything, please don't 
hesitate to let me know.
