Yout Realtek card: -- requires the 8139too module (look at dmesg output); -- is likely set as eth1, not eth0. I'm writing a gentoo-wiki page about my installation steps. It is not yet finished (would you contribute? ;-), but I cite other three pages about similar HP notebooks (zv6000 and dv8000) where you can find hints about wifi, Broadcom and ndiswrapper.
