Well, the ne2k-pci driver may or may not have been fixed finally (yes, it
is/was an endian issue and was patched.  I think the patch stuck tho).  As
for the tulip board, do not use the tulip driver, use de4x5.  I've tried 3
tulip cards with tulip.c 0.91g-ppc and none of them have worked. (a real
tulip, a lite-on and a maxtronic or something wierd like that).
