well i considered your patch to be a fine distro specific workaround.
now i've gone another way and disabled the dup pci-id's in tulip for i386.
afaik dmfe.ko explodes on parisc. so you could do the inverse for sparc.
ideally dmfe and tulip shouldn't pretend to work for chipsets they
can't, but that codebase won't get fixed in time for the etch release.
