Thanks for the response Alvin.  I was about to pull my hair out.  So
I assume from the eepro100.c file on your site that I can compile
this one and it runs without the pci-scan.o?  Also, is it already
patched or do I need to patch it?  Forgive my ignorance but how do I
patch it if I need to. No need for X11.  

I see from the discussions pointed to on your site the need for a
patch.  The last question, will this work with kernet 2.2.14 or will
I have to compile 2.2.16 ?  

Thanks again for your help!
