Are you interested in trying the 2.4.7-pre6 test kernel patch?

There is a generic PCI PM problem in 2.4.6, unrelated to tulip
specifically, that has since been fixed.

Also BTW this is a forum for reporting bugs for the scyld.com tulip.c
driver.  The tulip driver in 2.4.x kernels is different, and it is
preferred that bugs are reported to the bug tracker at
http://sf.net/projects/tulip/ to avoid confusing the two...
