Unknown Tulip-style chip?

Dear Sirs:

I recently installed a Linksys EtherFast 10/100 PCI card in my Linux
machine. I followed the manufacturer instructions for compiling the tulip
driver (version 0.91) and installing into the system. After this did not
work (modprobe would install the driver, but when I did an lsmod it would
describe the tulip driver as "unused"), I recompiled my kernel (version
2.2.5) with the tulip driver specified as a module.

Now I get during the startup process,

Unknown Tulip-style PCI ethernet chip type 11ad c115 detected: not

I have compiled and run the diagnostic tulip-diag.c program (v1.19), and it
gives me this:

Index #1: Found a Lite-On PNIC-II adapter at 0x6600.
 Port selection is 10mpbs-serial, half-duplex
 Transmitt stopped, Receive stopped, half-duplex.
  The Rx process state is 'Stopped'.
  The Tx process state is 'Stopped'.
  The transmit threshold is 72.
  The NWay status register is 000050ca.
  The current PNIC-II MAC address is 00:a0:cc:33:9b:38 (a000a000 33cc389b).
  The current PNIC-II WOL address is 00:a0:cc:33:9b:38.
   Internal autonegotiation state is 'Negotiation complete'.

If I try to do a modprobe at this point, I am told

init_module: Device or resource busy.

I currently have it hooked up to a LAN running 10Mbps hubs. I get the same
"not configured" message regardless of whether I use the tulip.o module
created during the kernel compilation or whether I use the 0.91 version
tulip.o I compiled myself.

Does anyone have a clue what I am doing wrong here?

Thank you.
