Hi.  I'm trying to install tulip to drive a Linksys 10/100 LAN Card
(model LNE100TX v. 4).  My Linux distribution (Debian 2.2.18pre21)
has modules enabled, and already includes the files 


I tried

  % depmod -a
  % modeprobe tulip
  /lib/modules/2.2.18pre21/net/tulip.o: init_module: Device or resource busy
  Hint: this error can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters
  /lib/modules/2.2.18pre21/net/tulip.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.2.18pre21/net/tulip.o failed
  /lib/modules/2.2.18pre21/net/tulip.o: insmod tulip failed

What am I doing wrong?



P.S. For what it's worth, here's the output from tulip-diag:
