(If you just do "insmod tulip" it goes 'nuts' then locks up the machine) You'll need to move the ethernet cable to the 10/100 socket now, too.

Does the 10 socket not work with the ne2k-pci driver? Or do you just prefer to use the 10/100 because it's faster? (I use the 10 socket with ne2k-pci because my school hasn't upgraded to 100 yet.)

IME the tulip driver is more reliable and (nominally) has a lower
CPU loading.  You should take a scan at the comments in the ne2 code some
time.. ;-)
