I am afraid of post these days. However, I must comment that I too am having
trouble with the tulip driver, on several SMC nic's that use the DEC
chipset. I tried mii_tool, with no success.

I have just been copying the tulip driver from 2.4.4 forward... because I
don't have enough time to try and create an intelligent error report.
