IntraServer Quad Ethernet

Hello Rick,

why have you compile the tulip driver into the kernel?  The problem is that
you can now not try to switch to a other connection type. Tried again with a
module and try the option most of the tulip card
doesn´t support the auto-sense function (with the Linux driver).

The most problems with collisions is that you are in half and the switch in
full-duplex is. You can easily check is the switch always logs error on the
port than have you a full - half duplex problem. Try the options.

What is standing in the message log with option the driver use?
