[tulip] LinkSys LNE100TX (again)

I have my Linux box ( I compiled both tulip and pci-scan for SMP since
I'm running SMP) and a Win95 box running with the LinkSys cards on a
LinkSys 10/100 hub.  Both appear to be sending packets, but neither
machine can communicate with the other.  When I ping from Linux box to
the Win95 box, I see the indicators for both ports on the hub flashing,
so I know something is going out.  Same result if I ping from the Win95
box to the Linux box.  From visual activity on the hub, they appear to
be trying to communicate.  So far I have installed PCI-SCAN and the
latest TULIP driver, which is what's enabled me to get this far.  Could
this be an issue that they are not auto-negotiating in a compatible
manner, and if so, how would I fix it?

Here's output of tulip-diag:
