 Hi John, 

I had this problem on the same machine (Celebris 6200 GLST). What I did
was to set the media-type manually (in the code). If you want, Ill send
you my tulip-file set to 10base2-media or whatever you need. I only
succeeded with the 0.79-driver because newer drivers are quite different
from 0.79.
