[tulip-bug] Using tulip.c with 2.4.18 for a 21143 card

I have a debian system with a 21143 chip ethernet card (built-in NIC
on a Digital PC5510).

This card works file with the 2.2.19 kernel, but doesn't work with the
debian supplied 2.4.18 kernel.

I have unpacked a stock 2.4.18 kernel for building my own kernel, but
I am unsure what to do with the tulip.c file of

The 2.4.18 source doesn't contain a tulip.c file, I can overwrite.

It has a directory called tulip, ie.

Should I delete that directory and drop the tulip.c file into
drivers/net/, before doing make menuconfig?

Or is the idea to first build the kernel, and then build the module
outside of the kernel, and drop it in over the tulip.o file?  The
Network driver updates document seems to hint at this?
