Question Problem with Xircom RE-100 on RH6.1

Hi. I just got a new laptop (CTX 700G) and installed a clean copy of RH6.1 on it. I'm having trouble with my RE-100, which worked in my old laptop (a thinkpad running RH5.2).

First of all, I did have some problems probing interrupts, the probe would only find IRQ 4, which was in use anyway. I set PCIC_OPTS="irq_list=5,9 do_scan=0" and IRQ 5 was correctly allocated to the RE-100. IO address 0x300 was also allocated to it. The link light comes up green and autonegotiation is fine (10Mb). when i try to ping another host, the packets are lost. ifconfig shows that the TX and RX counters on the RE-100 (eth0) stay zeroed, but the TX and RX on lo increase.

kernel is 2.2.12-20 and pcmcia 3.0.14

anyone have a clue i could borrow?
