I have tried with no avail to put the card in half duplex mode,
by including the following line in /etc/modules.conf

options tulip debug=3 full_duplex=0,0

what's wrong?

Another question: anyone knows if tulip should
appear in /etc/modules, the file that names the modules to be
load during boot? and what about pci-scan?

thanks, Marinho.
