 Parrish, you need to download the Makefile as indicated on
http://www.scyld.com/network/updates.html then edit the line which says
DRV_OFILES, and let only tulip.o there. You also need the include files and .c 
files as the above URL says under 'Installing Individual Drivers', then just type
make and it'll create two modules, insert first the pci-scan, then the tulip one
and you should be happy.

  Of course this applies to all the drivers modified to work with the new pci-scan scheme created by Donald.
