ok, that seems to work now. the MII is now always found.

... and even the "LNK"-led is lit.
still, packets are not transmitted ...
the cable I'm using is a TP45 crossover-cable (just two computers connected),
the cable is okay (works with a 21140, but not with 21143 ANA6911/TX-Combo).
also, please correct me if I am wrong, when I "insmod tulip.o options=1",
this sould force 10base2 on the driver ? I still get "no link beat on MII"
