#126 Cannot view/change speed/duplex settings in Fedora Core 6

EEPro 100 (3)

Would this be due to the Xen kernel? I admit, I have
not tested this with a non-Xen kernel yet, but ethtool
seems to have broken on two PCs after installing FC6.
One is a Compaq DL360 server, and the other is a Dell
D610 laptop.

# rpm -q ethtool

# uname -a
Linux localhost.localdomain 2.6.18-1.2798.fc6xen #1 SMP
