There is, but it sucks.  I'm sorry to say it, but it does.  I have a eepro100 
in the computer next to this one, and it was barely functional enough to 
handle downloading the one from intel.  It continually dies, spewing error 
messages to the console and requiring a reboot to fix, not even rmmod and 
insmoding the driver fixes it.  gack.........
