  In classic fashion, I figured this out just after I mailed
the list.  When compiled according to the Scyld instructions
for the 2.4 kernels, on my box, "insmod" was reporting some 
unresolved symbols, so I thought it was broken.  As it turns out,
though, "modprobe" successfully inserted the module.  
  I am now getting "Transit time out" and "Command 0080
not immediately accepted" in the log files, but the network 
has not locked up, so this is a definite improvement.

  What version?  I have 1.3.20, and it's making me crazy.  Did you
mod the makefile to point to your 2.4.x includes?  Are you 
including modversions.h?  (E-mail me if you think Intel stuff
is off-topic.)

  Color me green with envy.
