working on it. The
original author, Donald Becker, does not respond to bug
reports. If you are

EtherPower II with various
2.2.xx kernels and could not get it to work, so I
posted a request for help
to the epic100 mailing list. In response to my request

After I applied this patch the module worked and I used
it happily until I
recently changed from kernel 2.2.18 to 2.4.0. As soon
as I did that my
problems were back. I modified epic100.c manually and
inserted the delays
again. The module now works again for me. I created the
following patch from
my modifications to the epic100 module from the 2.4.0
kernel distribution:
