hi magnus

donno what all your issues are ...etc..etc...config/distro etc...
- you did not specify the hardware...if onboard NIC or not etc
( probably does NOT matter...

To get the eepro100 driver recognise the onboard NIC for the 
D815EEAAL series...
	- you should be using modules instead of kernel compiled-in
	- the eepro100.c from linux-2.2.16/17 needs to be patched
	  with the new defines

- other than those tweeks...
	the (patched)eepro100.c works fine with D815EEAAL

- system hanging could be that you left the BIOS "power save options"
  on....it hangs your keyboard/mouse after 30 minutes...

- i tried the Intel version ( e100-1.3.14.tgz )...works too...

have fun
