Description of problem:
While I've never had problems with RHL9 and previous versions, networking wasn't
working for me on Fedora test1 or test2.
I'm using an SMC 83C170QF board, and I'm using a netgear router.

The system was just reporting that there was no link present whenever I tried to
bring up eth0.

The fix was to...

$ rmmod epic100
$ insmod epic100 full_duplex=5

I don't know why.  Somebody just gave me this hint on IRC....

<xover> epic100 tries to auto-negotiate speed/duplex and if the netgear is
locked this will fail. If they have different defaults, you would get no link or
other weirdness.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Set up an SMC card and a Netgear RP614 router.
2.Try to boot.


Actual Results:  eth0 bring up reports  no link present.

Expected Results:  eth0 bring up reports OK
