Yes I had a quick go with that but it hasn't been made big endian/64
bit aware. I've done a bit of work to do this but have really been
concentrating my efforts on the tulip driver.

The tulip driver reports it as a DM9102(A) I guess that is probably
telling the truth but you never know.
As for getting things to work on a Netra-X1 I have am able to get to
full multiuser mode (Suse-7.1) but have no network so that makes it
quite difficult to do things at present. I've still got a few issues
with the realtime clock (it always seems to report year as 2000) but
the network is my main priority at the moment.
