[tulip-bug] AMDTek Tx Errors and Carrier Errors x2

I seem to be having a similar problem with my AmdTek Comet
chip.  There was a related thread that reported similar problems
with a different chip, but there was never any resolution posted.

SITREP:  RH7.2, kernel 2.4.18-17
 When pinging from a remote, unrelated host on the internet,
tcpdump shows the echo requests coming in, but no echo replies
going out.  Also, when pinging a remote host, tcpdump shows
the echo requests going out and echo replies coming back, but
ping shows no responses.  Below is the output of ifconfig.

I downloaded tulip-1.1.8 from sourceforge and loaded it as
a module.  No change in behavior.  I also eliminated iptables
as a problem by flushing all tables (wide open firewall)
which didn't change the behavior, either.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
