if you are using stock kernels... say 2.2.16 or 2.2.17...
- you need to use the patched one for 2.2.14 kernels too
( have not tried 2.2.14....
mv eepro100.c eepro220.127.116.11.c
cp patched_one_eepro100.c eepro100.c
than recompile your kernel and off you go
- i dont (have not had to) use pci-scan...etc..etc...
