Ethernet trouble on Mac IIvi


We blew the dust off one of our nearly forgotten Mac IIvi's and got a
running Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 base system installed on it without much
trouble after we figured Penguin out.  This Mac is directly connected
to an Ethernet, so we configured everything during installation.  The
problem we still have, however, is that we are not able to `ping' any
of the machines (by IP address) on the same subnet.

The Ethernet card is an AsanteLite NuBus card (MC3NB) and it seems to
be recognized during the boot.

One related thing is that we get error messages when we try to use
`eth0' similar to these.

eth0: Tx timed out, lost interrupt? TSR=0x3, ISR=0x17, t=999.
eth0: Tx timed out, lost interrupt? TSR=0x3, ISR=0x3, t=6500.

Anybody know what is wrong?  Is our ethernet card really recognized?
Is it supported to begin with?  If you need more info, let us know,
we'll be happy to provide whatever you need.
