I don't know, but on the topic of the tulip driver:

Does anyone know how to make it work with the BNC/thinnet interface on a UDB
(DEC 21040 chip)?  It says that it doesn't find the "link pulse" for
10baseT, then it switches automatically to AUI.  But it never tries BNC! 
Investigation in the source code shows no reference to it whatsoever,
although there are several tests to see if if_port is or is not 0.

I've tested with kernels 2.0.32 and 2.1.103, where 2.1.103 is slightly
hacked up to compile properly on my alpha.  PLIP works, so I assume that my
hacks were relatively well-placed.

I know, thinnet is dead, but it's what I'm stuck with.  Any advice would be
happily welcomed!

Have fun,
