You wouldn't happen to be the proud owner of a 3c509 3Com network adaptor
would you?  If you have this adaptor, and use either 10baseT or aui (thicknet),
you must specify the "link2" flag in /etc/hostname.ep0.  For example, mine
looks like:


128.32.42.147  netmask 0xffffff00 link2

If this is not the problem (and I am only taking a shot in the dark), then
be more specific about what your problem and hardware is.
