Looking at the Ethernet-HOWTO:
5.35.5. SMC EtherEZ (8416)
Status -- Supported
This card uses SMC's 83c795 chip and supports the Plug 'n Play
specification. It also has an SMC Ultra compatible mode, which allows
it to be used with the Linux Ultra driver. Be sure to set your card
for this compatibility mode. See the above information for notes on
the Ultra driver.
So make sure you set the card into Ultra compatibility mode.
SMC cards are generally very nice and painless under Linux -- and
even nice on Microsoft platforms.
