While we are lamenting about the rescue disk nuking ethernet cards,
I had a DLink-250 that the rescue disk would disable (changed the EEPROM
somehow). I forget the exact details but I do know that during boot Linux
can FRY (permantly harm) those DE-250 cards, it damages the eeprom in some
way that the setup programs will not rewrite it.
I forget what I did to fix it, I think I moved the base address.
