I've tried everything I can think of to get this card recognized. The
card is a Network Everywhere NC100 V2.1.
The only code I can get to successfully compile is tulip-diag. Tulip.c
gives me errors, and I've tried using 'kgcc' instead of 'gcc' due to having
Anyway, tulip-diag reports the following, which includes a 'PCI bus error!:

Port selection is 100mbps-SYM/PCS 100baseTx scrambler, full-duplex.

This is likely the non-primary interface on a multiport board.
Use '-a' or '-aa' to show device registers,
'-e' to show EEPROM contents, -ee for parsed contents,
or '-m' or '-mm' to show MII management registers.
Also, an insmod on the tulip.o that DOES compile outputs the following (this
is after I finally got past all of the 't_busy' errors, etc):
unknown symbol pci_drv_unregister (or unresolved - didn't get the output in
unknown symbol pci_drv_register
FYI, the card works fine under Win98 - it isn't a hardware problem. I've
tried a cold boot with and without PnP BIOS enabled, tried LILO ether=
- - nothing works. At boot up I get an error saying the module wouldn't
Something like 'IO or IRQ parameters could be incorrect.'
I can't think of any other pertinent info right now. Please let me know if
additional info will help. I'm debating a RH6.2 install just to see if
recognize the card. Thanks for the help, and please send me a direct email
if you post to the group.
