Dear Tony,

        I had once problems to get two 3C905CX to work in our slaves.
One alone would work ok, but not two. I could solve the problem by using
the 3c90x driver instead of the 3c59x.
changes in /etc/modules.conf:
alias eth1 3c90x
alias eth2 3c90x
(for the master)

in /etc/beowulf/config.boot:
pci     0x10b7  0x9200  3c90x
pci     0x10b7  0x9800  3c90x
pci     0x10b7  0x9805  3c90x
(for the slaves)

I have a Scyld bz27-8 system.

Yours, Hans.
