Even worse. Kudzu blew the identification. It is really a "3com940 
1000base?". STill, ethtool -s eth0 duplex half doesn't work. So, back to 
your idea we go...

OK, but as it turns out, there are no modules for this card. I do have a 
second card in there, a 3com501, and Kudzu won't even recognize it. I 
believe there's a big bug to swat for that one in bugzilla. Anyway...

Yep. Unfortunately, I don't have any modules for it, and I don't know 
where to get one.
