so this looks like the culprit; we have noticed something similar 
with the 2.6 xenlinux code and not sure why it happens (only some
times it appears). Anyway can you comment out line 1283 in 
linux-2.4.26-xen0/drivers/net/e100/e100_main.c to ignore the failure 
and see if it in fact just works? 


static unsigned char __devinit
e100_init(struct e100_private *bdp)
    u32 st_timeout = 0;
    u32 st_result = 0;

    if (!e100_selftest(bdp, &st_timeout, &st_result)) {
            if (st_timeout) {
            printk(KERN_ERR "e100: selftest timeout\n");
        } else {
            printk(KERN_ERR "e100: selftest failed. Results: %x\n",
#if 0
        return false;
        printk(KERN_DEBUG "e100: selftest OK.\n");

    /* read the MAC address from the eprom */


We can try to see if we can track it down over here (we have few 
e100 cards but should be able to manage).
