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

It looks about time to give up on this.
