The tulip driver that I am using while having these problems is a
separately compiled module that I replaced the stock kernel tulip.o

That driver is compiled from the tulip development sources version 1.1.8
which I downloaded from

I hope this can be of interrest

Best regards

Correction: with the tulip driver in 2.4.12.
