    Intel EtherExpress PRO 100/VE not working in Suse9.1

    I just installed Suse9.1 on my laptop. Builtin card is an
    Intel EtherExpress PRO 100/VE.

    e100 driver module is loaded and recognises the card. I can configure
    it; I can assign an IP but then cannot ping/telnet etc.

    When I try to DHCP; tcpdump shows DHCP_DISCOVER packets
    going out but no DHCPOFFER's coming back.
    However; if I snoop from a Solaris box on my network I can
    see even more traffic, including DHCPOFFER and DHCPACK pkts
    from the router being broadcast to the network. The laptop is
    not reporting these in it's tcpdump

    The card works successfully under Suse8.1 and also Solaris x86.

    I've tried
    modprobe -r e100
    modprobe e100
    ifconfig eth0 netmask up

    There are no errors in dmesg.

    Any ideas?
