Turns out I didn't have the right driver, I think I downloaded one of the
alternative versions listed on the eepro100 support page...when I tried
again with the version written by Mr. Becker it worked perfectly.  Thanks!  


Updated driver messages:

What driver version are you using?
Perhaps it's an older driver version that doesn't understand the current
large EEPROMs.

Yup, this won't work.
