1. 3c509 - eth0: transmit timed out

I am having some trouble getting a 3c509 network card running.  I compiled the
kernel with "CARDS = -DCONFIG_EL3" and "OPTS = -DEI8390=0 -DEI8390_IRQ=0" in
the /linux/net/inet/CONFIG file.  When I boot the machine, it seems to recognize
the card:

eth0: 3c509 at 0x300  tag 1, 10baseT port, address 00 20 af 12 67 b1 , IRQ 5.

However, when I try to telnet/ftp/ping some host, the command works, but is
interlaced by the following message appearing every few seconds:
eth0: transmit timed out, tx_status 00 status 2000.

I read the FAQ, and this message supposedly means that the Ethernet cable is
unplugged or the setup parameters for the card are not set correctly.

My system:
Gateway 486DX2-66, 16M
no soundcard/scanner/CD-ROM/SCSI controller
Linux Slackware release 0.99pl13 <<<-- Could be a problem

I have a feeling that I did something wrong when compiled the kernel.  The card
works fine under DOS, so I don't believe I have an IRQ conflict.
