I am using the epic100 driver and am running the 2.0.35 kernel and have no
problems at all (I'm running at 100 MBit). I just checked and the version
of the epic100 driver I'm running is:

     epic100.c:v0.99B 4/7/98 

as taken from the kernel boot messages.  If you'd like, I can email you
the v0.99B version of the driver for you to try.

Best regards,

P.S.  I had problems with this driver and a 2.0.37 kernel I was running
      earlier on.  Since I got it to work after dropping back to the 
      2.0.35 kernel, I didn't bother pursuing the matter further.
      Maybe I'll have to wrestle with this rascal again when I upgrade
      to the 2.2.x series of kernels. ;-)  Right now it works like charm:

bash-2.01$ /sbin/ifconfig eth0

eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:E0:29:1C:2B:AF  
          inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:
          RX packets:15693221 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:29800518 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          Interrupt:11 Base address:0xd400 

      Thanks Donald!  Works great!
