Try to add "options eepro100 options=0" to your /etc/modules.conf
to default the speed to 10Mbps if you're using 10BaseT.

add to /etc/modules.conf ...
# options=0x30 100mbps full duplex
# options=0x20 100mbps half duplex
# options=0     10mbps half duplex
options eepro100 options=0

then run "depmod -a"

Just noticed:

Actually, they don't hang _immediately_. They report:

eth0: Transmit timed out: status 0050  0000 at 6022/6034 commands 000c0000
000c0000 000c0000
Command 0000 was not immediately accepted, 10001 ticks!

And the ssh connection stalls but does on trying (it eventually hangs, but
not after a lot of errors are reported on the problem-box's console)

And then the box hard locks. Interesting to see that only when I run the
ssh ls -lR is that any error at all is produced. The lockups I was seeing
were all interactive use and I never really noticed if errors were showing
up or not; I just assumed they weren'.

Any help you can provide is very much appreciated. I'm about to try
Intel's drivers to see how they do.

Take care,
