No worries Norv, on the new box, one will indicate 10/100 speed (or even 1000 if it's a GB card) and the other will be link/activity.
Anyway, I've only seen what you're seeing once, and it was between two VMWare virtual machines, both running Windows.
In that case, I had to remove and reinstall the NIC driver on the box exhibiting the symptoms, and then it came up perfectly.
I'm not sure if this really relates to your issue or not, but it sounds like it's a driver/module issue, which doesn't really help you much I guess, but it's a start I think.
Are you able to boot the system with Knoppix or something to see if the card is functional?
