This is a hack for using the Ethernet Shield from DFRobot with MEGA.
You can NOT use pin 10 for the SD card as it is already used for the W5100 chip (eth).

1. Bend the following pins on the Ethernet Shield:: 3, 6, 8, 9.
2. Use wires to connect to the MEGA pins as follows::
ETH pin      MEGA pin
3(DO)         50
6(CS,SS)     53
8(DI)          51
9(CLK)        52
(see picture)
Now you can use the SD and UTFTtf Libraries as is.
The SD Library works with both FAT16 & FAT32.
The UTFTtf Library works only with FAT16.
