Thanks everyone for your help.
I had no idea what kernel options to pass to this PC card since it
doesn't have a real unique identifier but I used the "pcnet_cs"
value I found. I tried all sorts of things to stop the card from
auto-negotiation but it still comes up 100TX FD. I think I have one
of those cards that cannot be changed by the current Linux.
I would've gone through the source but I don't have room for it on the
HDD. One of the things I tried was in /etc/pcmcia/network.opts and
adding IF_PORT=10base2 to the config. It complained about an invalid
ioctl. Further searching on the net indicated that this meant the
card couldn't change the port speed.
Surely there must be a way to change the port speed?! It's a 10/100
card, meaning there are 2 choices! I think the issue is that the
driver in Linux doesn't know how to turn off auto-negotiation
for this particular brand.... :(
