Hi,
Zebronics is giving misleading information regarding 8139D chipset 
compatibility with linux, check out this link and downlaod the linux 
driver { 2.4 kernel support only }.
http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloads1-3.aspx?series=16&Software=True
Now as far as kernel source tree speak the corresponding PCI VID:DID 
entry is not even there let alone official linux kernel module support.
BTW nowadys vendors tends to claim of linux compatibility because of 
NDISWRAPPER support for native windows driver under linux.
But its untrue and could bring lots of stability and system integrity 
problem.
Going for a NIC having chipset fully supported by kernel.org is best way .
