	I can verify that this works, though I just compiled the drivers
on the drivers disk as seperate modules and then loaded them that way. I
did seem to have a few problem with a linuxmodversion.h include file not
being found in a few 2.2.x versions. 
	The good news is that 2.2.19pre13's tulip.c works out of the box
with this card (don't need the drivers on the disk). I have also found
that this kernel rev is plenty stable as well, at least on the SMP box the
NIC is in. :)

	PS. Kind of weird feeling finding working Linux drivers on a
bundled driver disk for a NIC. :)
