HMMM, just saw on another message as I was getting ready to send this there
is a 91g from 7/16.  Better get that downloaded.

Thanks to those who have replied so far it's given me some hope.

More info:
I said in my original message the link light on the hub never lights.
Checking it again tonight, both link lights (hub and card) come on at the
same time, and they both go out after the driver loads.

Under Win98 on both of my machines, the cards and hub work perfectly, lights
and all.

Here is some output from various commands that maybe someone might be able
to give me a little more help with.  I'm using "tulip.c:v0.91 4/14/99"
