I believe I have tested the same MB as yours with the inconsistence result
as I describe
in the last mail. So you don't need to install another MB, unless you feel
it would work.

11AD is the vender ID (as linksys or Lite-on), C115 (as LC82c115)is the
product ID. The phoenix bios will not show them when
system boots up. Under award bios, I can see  the ids from a device table.
I believe at the system bootup time, the NIC has been false recognized as
verder 11AD, device ID 01c0 in your case. What make me feel strange is that
since you NIC was recognized falsely, I don't think insmod tulip would
recgonized the NIC, and it would fail. The tulip.c I use were 0.91g and
0.90f (0.90f with linksys patch, this one came with the NIC, I believe
linksys did the patch), I did not try 0.91j, since, I basically think it is
a hardware problem. So I don't think upgrade to latest glibc will
