I'm kinda sorta in the boonies. But I do have another NIC card,
apparently a crappy little no-name Chinese one that I rejected in
favour of big-name 3Com. Feh. Extensive googling eventually revealed
that the little card is IBM/Intel. It works fine with eepro100.o.
Ho-hum. I think the 3Com is going to /dev/dump.
Thanks for the feedback,
