It is a bit different. If I don't load the module during the boot sequence
then I can get it to the stage of being pingable. I think that timing is the
issue, the boot scripts do everything quickly. If I modprobe it, then
ifconfig it, then change the media type, then I have succeeded once in
getting ping responses, but I couldn't ssh.
