You can ignore it; it an advisory message only. The chipset used for
sis0 needs some different parameters if you use a short cable - I
believe these come from the manufacturer. In fact, with an sis0 chipset
I always get this message even when using a cable which I believe is not
"short", but everything works just fine.
I'm sure that google would tell you more.
Unless you have actual ethernet errors (e.g. as shown by "netstat -i -I
sis0") then ignore it.
