Is there any possibility of documenting it, then?  I think it would be
better to leave the driver out rather than (on a 2.6 kernel) appear to
have set it up and leave you wondering what's wrong with the network.

If I did that, how would I install it?  Anyway, is there any
indication it will work in view of the below?

Meanwhile, I've found a card with an hme interface and done an install
with that.  On the reboot after the initial install on a disk with
Solaris on for dual boot, it boots Solaris, not silo, which then
reports that the disk label is screwed.

Starting again with a freshly-partitioned disk, sigh, the reboot fails

With either a 2.4 or 2.6 kernel.

It looks about time to give up on this.
