ESXi doesn't include a native driver for Realtek NICs. Try the one on this page - http://www.vm-help.com/esx40i/customize_oem_tgz.php.

Where are you getting the driver from? Just in case you're trying to use a Linux driver, ESXi isn't based on Linux so you won't be able to use such a driver. Linux source code for drivers can be used to compile ESXi drivers, but you can use native Linux drivers.
