Hi,

I'm sending this bug report through the tulip driver.
But the usage count in /proc/modules is zero:

# grep tulip /proc/modules
tulip 47168 0 - Live 0xcaa4e000

# ifconfig

I'm running debian stable/testing. The kernel is from
debian, "kernel-image-2.6.8-2-686" version 2.6.8-13.

# uname -a
Linux gate 2.6.8-2-686 #1 Mon Jan 24 03:58:38 EST 2005

Removing the module makes the network connection
unavailable. It is a bit hard to debug as the card is
in a headless server...
