"modprobe 3c59x" doesn't do anything - or not that i can see. the machine
hangs (not crashes, just hangs) for about five minutes or so. i rebooted
at that point.
"depmod -a -v" gives a big list of modules, inculding 3c59x. does this
mean that it is loading?
also, i saw this message at boot-up which may be of interest:
eth0: Unknown interface: Operation not supported by device
so there we are...
