The tulip module loads without errors, but when I try to ping a box on my
internal network or the internet I get destination unreachable and this

Does the tulip_old module work for your card?
I must be blind, I don't see an option for a tulip_old module in Kernel 2.4.7-2.
Doing a make xconfig it only lists one tulip module. Looking in
/lib/modules/2.4.7-2/kernel/drivers/net/tulip it only shows tulip.o. Looking at

I'm typing this out from the Roswell box now. Thanks for the help. Looks like RH
7.2 is going to be another great release. :-)
Looks like this is the old stuff - Jeff is this all resolved in modern tulip as
I believe ?
