After updating to the newer tulip driver in the devel kernels, my problems
with my real tulip card went away.  I've been having trouble getting two
other cards working however -- the lite-on card that I mentioned before, and
another tulip clone (Kingston).  The kingston card was much worse -- it
dropped ~30% of packets under light load, and completely locked up under
medium-heavy load.

Yeah, which would be unfortunate... :(
