RTL8139 Unrecognized under OSX (Dual Boot Issue)

I have a cheap Ethernet card which uses the RTL8139 chipset. It works great in OSX and in Windows XP 64bit. The problem that i have is that when i boot to Windows XP and then subsequently try to boot into OSX the card is not recognized. If I remove the card from the system, boot into OSX, shut down, reinstall the card, and then boot into OSX, everything works fine again. I don't use Windows XP all that often on the machine but sometimes do find the need to use it. It is quite a hassle to use this workaround to get my ethernet working again every time.


Has anyone else experienced a similar problem with the RTL8139? Are there any solutions? Thanks!
