What is the detection message?
How does the driver fail?
What does 'tulip-diag' report?

I'll need the specific message and error status.

The only known issue with 4 port 21143 cards is the common x86 BIOS bug

Putting 32 bit PCI chips behind is 64->32 PCI bus bridge (a 21152 chip?)
shouldn't impact driver operation.
