Linksys 10/100 PNIC on 486

> so my question is, Does the driver support 100M on 486's????
I'm successfully running a setup nearly identical to yours, except that
I've got kernel 2.0.36. Also, I do *not* overclock my CPU, though, since that
also winds up increasing my PCI bus speed to 40 MHz which caused my ethernet
cards to get flaky. Also, I've got a strictly 100 Mbit hub on my intranet,
with which my card works just dandy.
I compile the driver as a module. I use the following options line, but I
don't think it's mandatory to get things working:
options tulip csr0=0x00A04800
BTW, the motherboard I use is one of the old VLB/ISA/PCI boards. Worked like
a champ for me for over 3 years, til I recently moved on to a new K6-2 300
CPU and board.
