I had tried `insmod 3c59x options=1', which I guessed by looking at
the sources (what docs?), but I was fooled into thinking that didn't
work because the load message said "autoselect/10baseT interface".
However, I just tried again and, after running ifconfig, I get

eth0: media override to transceiver 1 (10Mbs AUI)

and indeed it works.  Thanks to all for your help (I'll get the latest
version of the driver nonetheless).
