I happen to have a multimedia box from siemens/fujitsu with a
cyrix processor, chipset and amd/lance ethernet chipset onboard.
It' working fine with 2.2.x but not with 2.4.x kernels with
the same driver version of the pcnet32 networkdriver.

2.4.0-ac4

Version number of the driver is the same but it doesn't work.

Any thoughts anyone ?
