Since you copied me I should point out that the 100Mb driver is not
an Intel-developed driver and I've never touched it.

Its not that I wouldn't help if something was needed, I could always
go check on the Linux code for something.

This is not just a community thing, I've never worked on the E100
stuff internally either. Just didn't want anyone to think that I knew
and actively supported that code :)
