this is a very nice page, it is now my reference :)

anyway i cannot say i made it, my icecube is still not under control.

every time i boot the 2.6 kernel after the original 2.4 one, the nic
seems to work. on subsequent boots, even after board resets, it does not.
i still need to check what happens removing the power cord.

kernel is built following the instructions on your wiki, i attached
the config file. please have a look, let me know if any check/test may
be advised.
