I switched Xircom cards and now am using the RE-100 (16-bit 10/100 card). When I boot I get depmod errors not related to the card (scsi, ide, etc.) and I hear the "good" beeps. As soon as the login prompt appears, I cannot type into the concole. The 3-finger salute also fails. I can boot into single user to modify things but nothing I have tried works. The network is up though because I can telnet into the laptop.
I am using 2.2.14 and 3.1.13 on a Debian system.
