RE: 3c509 with 2.4.0 kernel and sid
let's have a look ...
Did you try ... ?
Also, if i'm correct you would be able to set this parameter with netconf or
would at least find the dox when you use

I am sure all the NIC network config paramerters are good under
/etc/network/interfaces. You are correct though, I am trying to
find the correct option to send in from the lilo.conf append= line
to force the the 10baseT media port on, (if there is one :-). This
has been the target of my searchs and RTFMs so far.
