Sounds like you have a buggy kernel since it looks like cache
coherency problems.  By the revision of the eepro100 driver you
are using, it sounds ancient too.

Try running the 2_4_devel kernel.  The current eepro100 driver
works fine for me on a 440 so you shouldn't have a problem
assuming that the walnut port is working.
