I am not the guy you talk about, but with kernel 2.4.18 dmesg said:
sis900.c: v1.08.02 11/30/2001
eth0: Error EERPOM read ffff
I was told, that the reason was the driver not able to read the mac address
on the card. I had to update to kernel 2.4.20 and switch ACPI off to get
sis900 running. (The ACPI stuff seems to be related to my motherboard).
