We've experienced the same problem with a 2.4.18-smp kernel.

/var/log/messages said :

Aug 6 13:09:28 li09903 kernel: eth0: Intel(R) 8255x-based Ethernet Adapter
Aug 6 13:09:31 li09903 kernel: Mem:0xf6408000 IRQ:18 Speed:0 Mbps
Aug 6 13:09:31 li09903 kernel: Failed to detect cable link.
Aug 6 13:09:31 li09903 kernel: Speed and duplex will be determined at
time of connection.
Aug 6 13:09:31 li09903 kernel: Hardware receive checksums disabled

Setting link parameters via module options solved the problem here.
