    I just checked the BIOS' between the two machines and
    there was one slight difference. Working machine I
    had serial port turned off and the parallel port setup
    differently, so I made changes to the broken machines
    BIOS so they are identical. After making the change I
    checked 'lspci -vvv' on the broken one and it's the
    same output as before.

    I tested the Marvell interface to see if it made any
    difference and the line died after about a second of
    transfering data. dmesg reported this:

    sky2 eth1: enabling interface
    sky2 eth1: ram buffer 0K
    sky2 eth1: Link is up at 100 Mbps, full duplex, flow
    control both
    sky2 0000:04:00.0: error interrupt status=0x80000000
    sky2 eth1: hw error interrupt status 0x8
    sky2 eth1: MAC parity error
    sky2 0000:04:00.0: error interrupt status=0x80000000
    sky2 eth1: hw error interrupt status 0x8
    sky2 eth1: MAC parity error
    sky2 eth1: disabling interface
