So for myself I am glad to learn that I don't have to patch 91u,
which I have been using for a while with PNIC's and 21143's.
Here is the location of 91u--again, :-) FAQ--

Use tulip.c:v0.91u 10/15/99 from---


Use the README there.

Place those files in /usr/src/linux/drivers/net.

Also may be helpful--

#pushd /usr/src/linux/drivers/net
cat Makefile | gawk --source '{

  else print $0}' > /tmp/gawk.out
#mv /tmp/gawk.out Makefile

make tulip
