I've had trouble in the past with NICs using the "Ethernet 
autoselect" option.  Check "man sis" to see how to set it manually, 
and try disabling full-duplex.  Might also try ftp-ing via localhost, 
if that's fast, there's a good chance the problem is in the sis0 
adapter and not the IP stack or OS.

I'm curious to try to Soekris boxes myself;  let us know what you 
figure out,  please.
