Yep, I have LNE100TX ver. 4.0(I think)  working . I can send the binaries to
you if you want.  I am not at that machine, but I can send them to you
tonight, or if/when I go home for lunch. There are some entries to make in
/etc/modules.conf or something like that. I can't remember if I overwrote
the tulip.c driver included with the kernel, with the linksys one, or just
used the binary as a module. I tried both. I am pretty sure that its the
module that is working. I tried compiling the 'netdrivers' version
seperately, but didn't work, even the source that came with the card- no
luck.  I have the linksys NIC working in two machines. 2.2.17.  Red Hat
based. I tried so many things to get it to work, I really don't know the
exact steps to take to get it working, but if you need help, don't
I can also send some html files that were of assistance.

Still haven't gotten the pcmcia version of the Linksys Cardbus to get
recognized (well, actually, I HAD it recognized, but still didn't  work,
changed some things, and then it wasn't even recognized.. oh well.
