Just wanted to let you, and anyone else on the list who cares know that the onblard NICs on the Tyan i815T motherboard does work correctly, with the eepro100 driver. The original board i had was bad. I got the replacment in today and it works with Rehdat 7.2 Stock and Errata kernels both. I didn't have to set the MAC address for either NIC. Thanks for your help. Sorry for cluttering the list.
