One last try..

I earlier posted this problem, which many of us are having with a
particular implementation of the Digital 21143PC chip on the Samsung/API UX
Alpha motherboards.
We have tried running this with the tulip V.90, and the DE4X5 drivers, as
modules, and in the kernels. In each case we get the same thing:
On startup the NIC tries to auto-negotiate for media type, floods the
network with data, and never succeeds in detecting media type .

When I posted this enqury a couple of weeks ago, the only repsonses were
about how to "hard-wire" the media-detect. While a partial solution, it is
not the "real" answer.

This is of a pretty high priority as we have 2 Beowulf clusters waiting for
this fix. This totals about 100 machines sitting "dead in the water".

Has anyone got any suggestions? We could sure use one.
